Is there something in the water in Romford? This unprepossessing town seems to produce quite a few playwrights. First there was David Eldridge, then James Martin Charlton and now Ben Musgrave.
Ben is a fellow graduate of the MA Writing for Performance at Goldsmiths College, and was last year's winner of the inaugural Bruntwood Playwriting Prize at the Royal Exchange Theatre. His play Pretend You Have Big Buildings is being produced there later this year as part of the Manchester International Festival. I've heard from reliable sources that it's rather good.
Ben's also started a blog about the process of building up to such a momentous event, which I will be reading with interest. Welcome, Ben.
