This essay characterizes a community of playwrights working in Britain across generational lines, and emphasizes the need to complicate customary distinctions between political (older) and politically sceptical (younger) writers, arguing that writers are connected through their responses to the discrete historical moments they experience and through a British writing culture that allows for mutual support. The current situation is seen as fluid and eclectic, containing space for a range of theatrical writing.
