Post War British Theatre: a second Golden Age?

Thu 6th Dec 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Harold Pinter
Terence Rattigan
John Osborne

This lecture examines how the theatre responded to the upheavals of the Great Depression, two World Wars, the Cold War, the Space Race and the Information Revolution.  It considers how, throughout this age of extremes, the show still went on and continues to reflect our story right up to the present.

Lecturer: Mr Giles Ramsay BA MA PGCE
