Katie Mccullough Talks and Writes

Words will get written here and some videoblogs will appear. You don't have to look but it would be nice if you did.

Cut Off November 25, 2010

I was approached by Melissa Dunne after working with her on my London debut, “Love-Aged-28” about writing a short play in response to the arts cuts. Earlier this year she curated a collection of plays in response to the arts cuts at Theatre503. This time it’s transferring to the Tristan Bates Theatre for a longer run and it will include a play written by me called, “Food For Thought“.



“Art is not an add-on, It never has been. It has always been central to our existence and understanding.”

– Lee Hall, Guardian Theatre Blog earlier this year.


This year an announcement was made to cut £19m worth of funding to the arts. Some people thought this was for the best; some thought it was for the worst. Six writers give their response.
