debbie tucker green is one of Britain’s most creative playwrights. With each play she continually reconsiders the notion of what a play can be – how the form the play takes says as much about the play as the words the characters speak. Much of her work has premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre, as well as at Hampstead Theatre and The Young Vic. Below are production photographs from some of her work. Soho Rep. produced green’s play born bad in 2010. Our production of generations marks our second collaboration with the playwright. Her plays have always been huge and adventurous challenges for directors, actors and designers. Each play constantly and continually look at ways of making the theatrical event uniquely theatrical.
