Slowly emerging from the intense effort of finishing my newest play.

THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE was commissioned to commemorate the tercentenary of David Hume, the philosopher.

It was fiendishly difficult.

One of its subjects is the revolution in thinking and political practice that is being brought about through the internet; and through the iPhone.

I feel absurdly proud of the fact that as I finished it, events in Tunisia and then in Egypt had begun to unfold. That the immense power of these new media had begun to be used to bring about revolutionary change.

That what I was writing about is actually happening: and in ways none of us foresaw.

And the fact I can't even complete this thought at this moment (2014 on February 10th 2011) because events are reaching their climax.
