Writing 'Place'

Creative Writing session with Kevin Fegan.

Kevin Fegan has written to commission over 50 stage plays for a wide variety of theatre, including award-winning plays ‘Excess XS’ (Contact Theatre 1992 – first play about the rave scene) and ‘Strange Attractors’ (Contact in association with Granada TV 1994 – first play about virtual reality), ’52 Degrees South’ (Imperial War Museum North 2002), ‘White Trash’ (Quarantine at Contact 2004) and more recently ‘Slave’ (Feelgood Theatre at The Lowry and national tour 2010-11).

He has written several plays and drama serials for BBC Radio 4, and worked as a storyline writer for Granada Television’s Coronation St.

He has also published 10 collections of poetry, and edited several anthologies. He is a regular performer of his own poetry.

Kevin has worked extensively as a writer-in-residence in a wide variety of community and education environments, in particular prisons.

Kevin is working with a group of older people from Fegg Heyes as part of the Live Age Connects outreach project. Come and meet Kevin and some of the group and explore the part that 'place' plays in the stories we tell.
