Let me just say: of all the playwrights who have inspired me in the past decade, Anna Deavere Smith takes centre stage. My views on art are very much influenced by her work, and she inspires me to the point where I look at what she's done and want so desperately to drop everything and follow in her (docu-dramatic) footsteps.

Twilight: LA completely changed the way I thought about theatre. I have always been a firm believer that art, and especially theatre, is necessarily political, but there was always a twinge in the back of my mind that it could only have so much impact. Then I found her work, and I started to realise just how powerful theatre can be.

From her show On the Road: A Search for American Character:
