My Favourite Things about No Longer Giving a F***

BY RICHARD WALLS
@ VOL 25 ON MAY 03, 2016

Playwright Richard Walls thought he had his career made for him when he landed a prestigious Royal Court commission, but things didn't quite go to plan. In this entertaining talk, he explains how accepting responsibility for the resulting failure liberated him, and how adopting a philosophy of no longer giving a f*** about his work actually helped him to follow his heart and become the writer he was always meant to be!
