David Edgar's plays have been presented by the Royal Court, the National Theatre, the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company (including Destiny, Maydays, Nicholas Nickleby and A Christmas Carol).
After 50 years of writing, Trying It On (directed by Christopher Haydon) marks David's debut as a performer.
"Are we the same person?
If not, when and why not?
If so, can either of us bear it?"
David is 20 and in his second year at University.
It is the height of the world-wide student revolt.
The Vietnam war rages.
Powell delivers his "rivers of blood" speech.
Martin Luther King is assassinated.
These events will define David's politics and give focus to his writing.
It's 50 years on.
The 70-year-old is confronted by the 20-year-old. Do they share the same beliefs?
If not, is it the world that's changed, or him?
Why did his generation vote Brexit?
Has he sold in or sold out?
