My major project in 2017 was Against at the Almeida. Methuen published the play along with a new collection for which I wrote an introduction. In addition, I returned to EST after twenty years with my one-act Falling Away. Off the stage, I wrote about the challenges of writing in the Trump era for the New Statesman, and was interviewed for Fifty Playwrights on their Craft.
I did a Q&A with the Evening Standard and wrote for The Arts Desk on how Against came to be. On video, I spoke with the Almeida about my process on Against, and I did a podcast with Rob Icke where we have a wide-ranging discussion about my writing and the world. Finally, I wrote for the New Statesman about how I chose to respond to Donald Trump's election in the play.
