Theatre director Emma Rice, of Kneehigh Theatre, speaks powerfully about story-telling

I once tried unsuccessfully to entice the wonderful theatre director Emma Rice, of  the equally wonderful Kneehigh Theatre, to become interested in transforming some Rosemary Sutcliff stories into theatre stories. No matter: last night Emma presented a fascinating essay on radio in which, in the words of BBC,  she explored “the role of the director as storyteller” and “elaborates on the undertaking that transforms a text into a fully-fledged production”. Worth a listen by anyone as fascinated by and good at  story-telling as she – and Rosemary Sutcliff were.
