More Information on Meet the Writer – Papatango Prize Winner Tajinder Singh Hayer
Papatango Prize Winner Tajinder Singh Hayer talks about approaches to writing audio drama and their play Ghost Stories From An Old Country. In conversation with Leeds Playhouse’s Associate Director Amy Leach, Tajinder will discuss their journey as a writer, applying for the Papatango Prize, and the things they’ve learned about audio drama over the last year. There will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions about the writing process and also about the play itself.
Ghost Stories From An Old Country, and the other Papatango Prize winning plays, can be listened to via tablets or QR codes, which will be available from Box Office for the duration of Furnace Festival. Braille copies of the plays are also available.
This event is part of our Furnace Festival 2021 – a week-long celebration of new work by new artists.
