Ella Hickson's 'The Writer' is a work of meta-theatre which addresses what it means to challenge the status quo; if it’s even possible to do so; and the personal costs of attempting it. If we want to change the world how should we write the new stories? The play attempts to answer such a question through brittle scenes which navigate gender, love, race, sex, and money. From a young woman forgetting her bag and a row over a cassoulet, to surreal memories of a lake and distorted realities, The Writer is attempting to destabilise the establishment from within.
