Exeunt: Ali McDowall Interview – B-sides and rarities

[written for Exeunt]

As someone writing about theatre you sometimes get asked to do an interview with a playwright for the programme of a production of their play. The requirement for the programme tends to be about 1,500 words or so. Depending on the speaker, the average person seems to say roughly five times that (or more) in an hour. And, well, when the whole hour is really interesting, it seems silly not to put it out. The “Ali McDowall: The Greatest Hits” interview is in the programme for Pomona at the Manchester Royal Exchange, playing 29th October to 21st November.

This is a lot of the rest of that interview...
