‘Some plays are refined over years, the writer chiselling and revising. Others owe their power to having been written in a white heat, but after a long mental gestation period: such is Away. Peter Kingston, Griffin’s Artistic Director at the time, needed something to fill a slot for a show that had fallen through. Gow proposed the idea of Away, then spent three weeks writing ... and he told me recently that “there was virtually no rewriting, in fact the one and only typescript of the play is pretty much what Currency published”.’ - Hilary Bell
