“The ultimate tendency of civilisation is towards barbarism” – David Hare 

Good theatre holds a mirror up to society forcing audiences to shine a light on the darkest corners and recesses of society. In these tumultuous times, it’s easy to wonder where is our world headed, and how we might navigate the new obstacles that arise when we get there? 

Fortunately, British Playwright Sir David Hare, is no stranger to pondering these mind bending questions. During his illustrious career he’s written over 30 plays often examining the machinations of British politics and institutions, and its these plays that have seen him named, “the premier political dramatist writing in English” by The Washington Post. 

So how has writing shaped Sir David Hare’s vision for where society is headed? And how might creativity unlock a way to adapt to what the future holds? Join Sir David Hare for an evening of conversation with theatre producer Jo Dyer about his remarkable career as a playwright, and his creative plans for the future.

This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas and supported by the Faculty of Arts, Design & Architecture and Adelaide Writers’ Week.
