I never want to make a film. I don't wake up in the morning going, 'Ooh, I'd really love to be on set making a film today'.

The culturally specific, in particular, the American porch play that American writers have cherished and loved for many years in terms of their new writing, has seemed to have very little relevance to a much more fast-flowing, abstract, experimental drama that has been emerging in [the UK]. The porch play, not to mention that thing of, Oops, I wasn't loved enough by my father, somehow didn't have the relevance in this country.More Stephen Daldry [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
