The toughest creative challenge in town is back at Southwark Playhouse.
Present : Tense / Nine challenges some of the UK's finest artistic talent to to respond to the most important news story of the moment in just seven days.
Taking up the gauntlet are: TIM PRICE, JOY WILKINSON and NICHOLAS WRIGHT (playwrights); NATHAN CURRY, POLLY FINDLAY and ZO WATERMAN (directors); IMAGINARY FORCES (theatre company); RACHEL ROSE REID (storyteller) and ISOBEL WALLER-BRIDGE (musician).
The artists assembled on Sunday 16 November to decide what they think is the most important story on the news agenda. They then have one week to each create a response before their work is performed live.
The team selected the story of Baby P as the inspiration for this week's show.
