Fighting Words Writers Featured in The Irish Times After Spectacular Showcase!

Following the Fighting Words Centenaries 2022 showcase, in which six of our own young playwrights had their plays performed live at the Peacock Theatre, The Irish Times published a feature on the performance now available to view on their website.

Interviewed in the article are Fighting Words co-founder Roddy Doyle and young playwright Rachel Thornton. Thornton speaks with Donald Clarke of The Irish Times about what seeing her work performed live on stage means to her: "Looking out into the audience, being watched and looking back at the watcher, those moments can't really be found on the stage."
