The craft of playwriting requires skills and ability to visualise the narrative brought to life on stage, rather than the page. How do practitioners envision and produce a play? Dan Evans, Merlynn Tong, Sam Foster and Hayden Jones (of Shock Therapy Productions), discuss their inspiration and craft with Annie Te Whiu.
