“As a young Asian woman, my experience was that so little was expected of you and so little was offered to you that you had to fight for everything.”

Rebecca Atkinson-Lord continues her series of conversations with the leading figures in UK theatre around the idea of legacy.

This week she talks to Kully Thiarai, artistic director of National Theatre Wales, who explores what it means to run a theatre that represents an entire nation, particularly post-Brexit, and how fighting for diversity is exhausting.
