Robin Nelson: Stephen Poliakoff on Stage and Screen (Methuen, 2011)
Robin will be here to talk about his new book over a glass of wine …….
Over four decades, Stephen Poliakoff has proved himself to be a distinctive dramatist in the mediums of theatre, film and television. Moving from playwright to television and film director, he has been hailed as “TV’s foremost writer” (The Independent) and as “one of our most poetic and best TV dramatists” (Daily Telegraph). In the USA, his TV “films” have received industry acclaim, The Lost Prince winning three Emmy Awards and Gideon’s Daughter two Golden Globes. However, Stephen Poliakoff has not fully received the critical attention his substantial achievement deserves.
