David Hare: Obedience, Struggle and Revolt

David Hare’s event at the London Review Bookshop, a few months after the publication of Obedience, Struggle and Revolt: Lectures on Theatre, found him on fine form. Hare took the opportunity to extemporise on subjects such as why he writes for the theatre and not for television, what distinguishes political writing, how subjects choose him, the controversy within the 1968 generation, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, and much more besides.
