Writer in Residence – Nick Atkins

Nick Atkins is an Australian playwright and theatre maker. He has worked across dramatic and contemporary performance forms consistently picking away at themes of mythology, Queer identify and collectivism.

While at Nes, Nick is working on a draft of a new play. His new work follows the story of two couples as they become implicated in the sudden and unexpected death of a man with seemingly no friends or family. Their efforts will entangle one another in a conflict that considers how far we will we compromise our ethics in order to leave behind a legacy.  http://feedthewhale.com/
