Imagine you are approached by one of the world’s most famous musicians and asked to create a show using their songs.
But there is a problem. You’ve never written a musical before.
That was the challenge facing the Irish playwright Conor McPherson, when he was contacted by none other than Bob Dylan’s management company.
The writer, who is best known for his critically acclaimed play The Weir, says he was “puzzled” and has no idea why he was approached.
“And I don’t really want to know,” he adds.
I look forward to this. I have tickets for September.
