BAFTA winning British playwright and television dramatist, Stephen Poliakoff CBE, discusses his work in conversation with writer and critic, Brian Dillon.



As Poliakoff has said, “I’m very anti the social-realist tradition because I don’t think the world looks like that. Dickens was right. The world is full of originals. My work is vividly coloured because that’s how I see the world” and tonight he discusses his ideas and thoughts on the relationship between image-making, memory, nostalgia, and place.
