ASSET: Helen Banner

Before changing her profession to playwright with a focus on addressing current themes and events, Helen Banner was a Cambridge educated lawyer in service of the British government. In this substantial interview she tells of her historical references of successful diplomacy, from Northern Ireland to Bosnia and the Middle East, and how this research was developed into her new play, "Intelligence", currently running at the New York Theatre Workshop, and likely more venues to come.
