‘A writer of grace and luminosity’

The Stage

I tell stories. My work has received the International Theatre Institute’s Award for Excellence, the Critics’ Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright, a South Bank Sky Arts Times Breakthrough Award, an Evening Standard Progress 1000 Award, a Betty Trask Award and the Northern Ireland One Book Award, and been translated into eight languages. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, teach creative writing at the University of Oxford, and review fiction for the Guardian.

‘He writes to free us and deserves our thanks.’
