We are excited to welcome the writer Stefan Golaszewski as our keynote speaker. Stefan’s work includes the Radio 4 and BBC4 sketch show Cowards, the play Sex with a Stranger (2012), and The Stefan Golaszewski Plays. He is the creator and writer of Him and Her, BBC3’s award-winning ‘anti-romantic comedy’ starring Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani as Steve and Becky, the titular couple who – most of the time – merely want to be left alone in their untidy but comfortable flat. The show is an extraordinary depiction of the sordid and affectionate reality of an intimate relationship, ably supported by a cast of friends and family (Kerry Howard, Ricky Champ, Joe Wilkinson, Camille Coduri) who refuse to permit Steve and Becky’s fundamental desire to curl up together and ignore the world. The fourth and (sadly) final series of Him and Her won a BAFTA in April, and we are privileged to welcome Stefan to Oxford to discuss his work as a fitting culmination to our conference.
