David Edgar: Trying It On

Source https://macbirmingham.co.uk/event/trying-it-on-by-david-edgar

It’s 1968. David is 20. The Vietnam war rages. The world-wide student revolt is at its height. Martin Luther King is assassinated. Enoch Powell delivers his “rivers of blood” speech. These events will define David’s politics and give focus to his playwriting.

It’s 50 years on. the 70-year-old is confronted by the 20-year-old. Do they still share the same beliefs? Is it the world that’s changed, or him? Why did his generation vote Brexit? Has he sold in or sold out?

David Edgar’s plays have been presented by the National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company (most recently A Christmas Carol) and The Rep (from Mary Barnes to Arthur & George). After 50 years of writing, Trying It On (directed by Christopher Haydon) marks David’s professional debut as a performer.
