"When I go and see a play, any play. I always look for three things. I want to be moved, I want to be surprised and I want to be educated... Ultimately that’s what I want my audience to come away with. And just a level of understanding, I remember one writer said this once and I loved it. He said ‘my novels are about Black people but they are for everybody’. And I just thought, ooh, I like that. I really… I’m going to nick that."

Roy Williams, writer of The Fellowship, spoke to writer and broadcaster Bonnie Greer about the inspiration behind the play, the importance of the female characters at the heart of the play and his advice for emerging writers today.


The Fellowship opens 21 June - 23 July 2022.
