Jonathan Coe, the author of The Rotters’ Club, and Richard Cameron who has adapted it for the stage, discuss this new production and their careers.

This In Conversation is presented in association with Writing West Midlands and will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s Arts and Ideas programme, Free Thinking, and presented by Matthew Sweet.

Jonathan Coe’s novels include What A Carve Up, Expo 58 and most recently Number 11. He grew up in Birmingham and much of his work reflects his Midlands heritage. Richard Cameron writes for theatre, television and radio, and won the inaugural Dennis Potter Award for his television play Stone, Scissors, Paper.

See the world premiere of The Rotters’ Club here from 2-9 April.
