The Writer
By Ella Hickson
Directed by Blanche McIntyre
At Almeida Theatre 14 April – 26 May

“I want awe. I feel like I need blood. All the time. And anything less than that makes me feel desperate. It makes me feel like I want to die.”

An ambitious young writer challenges the status quo but discovers that creative gain comes at a personal cost. She wants to change the shape of the world. But a new way of thinking needs a new story...

In the wake of her successful 2016 run of Oil at the Almeida Theatre, Ella Hickson is back with her highly anticipated play, The Writer, which is directed by Blanche McIntyre.

Running from 14 April – 26 May. For more information and to book tickets, visit almeida.co.uk
