David Edgar is Britain's leading anti-racist playwright and a prominent commentator. His contribution as a political writer and public social critic has been analysed by Janelle Reinelt and Gerald Hewitt in their forthcoming book, The Political Theatre of David Edgar: negotiation and retrieval (Cambridge University Press, 2011). The piece below is based on excerpts that focus on Testing the Echo, a recent play on Britishness by Edgar.
