Dot continues to organise British Playwrights Talk in collaboration with British Council by inviting British playwrights in 2009/2010 season to talk about their plays and discuss the current role of contemporary theatre in the world politics and societies.
The forth guest of the talk is Simon Stephens who is the author of "Pornography". It is the first play of Dotatmars Project sponsored by Mars Entertainment Group. During the panel, which will be held on the 28th of March, Sunday, Simon Stephens and Murat Daltaban, the art director of DOT and Dotatmars project, will talk about the play and about contemporary theatre.
Simon Stephens is one of the most important playwrights of Britain. Born in Cheshire, in 1971 he is now an increasingly significant voice in English theatre. Graduated from the University of York, Stephens wrote his first play "Bluebird" in 1998. Since 2005, he has been working in the literary department of the Royal Court Theatre in London. While there, he holds a leadership position in the Court's Young Writers' Programme. His first plays were mostly on complicated and emotional human relations. However, his later plays have a political focus. Whilst his writing is frequently brutal, within lies an optimism and an authenticity that sets him apart from many of the playwrights in his theatre generation. His plays are often humane explorations of family life. He currently lives in London with his 3 kids.
