We are delighted to announce the first keynote speaker, David Greig at our upcoming annual conference “Complacent About Christie”.
David Greig is Artistic Director of the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh as well as an acclaimed and award-winning playwright. His plays have been performed across the UK, at the Royal Court, National, the RSC, and the Traverse Theatre in Scotland, and have been produced and toured around the world. Plays include The Lorax, The Events, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart, Dunsinane, and the book for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – the musical and, more recently, The Suppliant Women, which premiered at The Lyceum in September.
David has worked extensively as a workshop leader on projects to teach or develop playwriting. He has worked extensively with playwrights in Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Tunisia, and Morocco. He also worked with playwright April De Angelis on a two-year collaboration between the Royal Court Theatre and The British Council. The plays produced in that project were published in English and in Arabic, and have been given performed readings in New York, London, Beirut and Cairo.
