“I owe so much of the confidence and the opportunities I have as a writer to the National Theatre. From the joy of opening Dear England on the Olivier stage last summer to collaborating on a new show from Liverpool’s Royal Court this year, I know how a strong, ambitious and thriving National benefits all theatres, and all artists nationwide.”

Playwright and screenwriter, James Graham.
