TravCast is the Writer's Podcast from the Traverse, Scotland’s New Writing Theatre. Associate Director, Hamish Pirie, interviews well known playwrights whose work features in the year round programme at the Traverse.
In this episode, Hamish Speaks to Sue Glover. Sue was born in Edinburgh and went to school and university there. She now lives further North in the fishing village of Anstruther, within sight of the sea, and close to the beach which was the setting for her first theatre play (The Seal Wife). She writes for television and radio as well as theatre. Her favourite medium is the one she is writing for at the time.
Several of her plays have been translated and produced abroad, but she regards Guy Pierre Couleau's translations and productions of Asservies and La Chaise de Paille as highlights of her theatre experience. (Her other plays include The Bubble Boy, The Seal Wife, Artist Unknown, Sacred Hearts, Shetland Saga.) Sue Glover's plays have been produced worldwide to critical acclaim. Bondagers, about the women who worked on the Border farms, was hailed as a modern Scottish classic, and included in Cannongate's Twentieth Century Scottish Drama. This episode contains some strong language.
