About the Author

Steve Waters runs the MPhil in Playwriting at Birmingham University. He is also an acclaimed playwright whose plays have been staged at the Donmar Warehouse (World Music), the Sheffield Crucible (The Unthinkable), Hampstead Theatre (Fast Labour), and the Bush Theatre (The Contingency Plan).
