Video: Katori Hall interview

In preparation for The Mountaintop we have been watching a bunch of interviews with playwright Katori Hall. We thought we’d share one of our favourites in which Katori Hall is interviewed for the National Theatre. In this interview she speaks about her writing process, inspiration and why she decided to write The Mountaintop. Watch it here.

‘I find myself just wanting to capture reality because I just want people to see something very honest and truthful on stage.’

Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop begins on 1 November at Arts Centre Melbourne, Fairfax Studio starring Bert LaBonté and Zahra Newman, directed by Alkinos Tsilimidos.
