Dreams of a Life (Q&A) 2011

United Kingdom

There are no instant answers or easy targets in Carol Morley's recreation of an anonymous life that gained interest only once it had ended. Morley recalls turning detective to remember a lonely woman in a loveless city, and finding actor Zawe Ashton (who joins her on stage) to underwrite a story which has gone on to find worldwide resonance.
