Mark Ravenhill and Shankho Chaudhuri in Conversation

Living Newspaper Clippings, is a new series of conversations between some of the writers and artists who are creating Living Newspaper at the Royal Court Theatre.

“I definitely went through phases of thinking, ‘Why is a writer even involved in a cartoon?’”

In this episode, writer Mark Ravenhill (The Cane, Shopping & Fucking) and Shankho Chaudhuri (Associate Designer at New Diorama Theatre and Poltergeist Theatre) from the Living Newspaper Design Collective discuss making theatre in lockdown and how they brought a Cartoon to the stage for Living Newspaper Edition 2.

Living Newspaper clippings is available to listen on Apple Podcasts and you can also stream it on our website here.

This conversation has been transcribed and can be accessed here.
