They say truth is stranger than fiction, real life is never as neat
as in Hollywood or as splendidly dramatic as in Shakespeare. So
what happens when you try to turn real life into drama?
If you stretch fact too far, does it turn into fiction or just fake news?
Ireland is obsessed with history but why is there so little of it
on stage?
 
Three leading writers/directors talk about the potential and
pitfalls of putting real life on the stage and page.With Louise
Lowe of multi-award-winning ANU Productions, Emilie Pine,
author of book of the year Notes to Self and Associate
Professor, UCD and Colin Murphy, playwright (Haughey/
Gregory, Inside the GPO,
Guaranteed!)
