In March 2021, over 100 Black playwrights and writers from the Global Majority signed “We Need To Talk About Dramaturgy,” an open letter to the theatre industry challenging Eurocentric perspectives on play development and dramaturgy.

Both the Young Vic and the Royal Court Theatre received the letter, and both recognize the important and necessary points for change for which the letter advocates. Both are, also, on a journey towards anti-racist practice with The What If Experiment – previously Sour Lemons – and recognize such work needs to filter through to literary and dramaturgical activities.

On the one-year anniversary of the open letter’s publication, this event brings together signatories of the letter with dramaturges, script developers and literary associates to discuss changes made so far, and changes still to be made. Changes to perspectives and practices in the sector, and challenges to gazes, standards and traditions.

Speakers include Dermot Daly, Reginald Edmund, Tommo Fowler & Teunkie Van Der Sluijs

In Partnership with and chaired by the What If Experiment
