Uncovering the surprisingly varied theatre that emerged in post-war Britain, we will explore theatre censorship, political drama, and playwrights like Christopher Fry (The Lady’s Not for Burning), T S Eliot (The Cocktail Party), and Rodney Ackland (Absolute Hell).
A half-day session led by Dan Rebellato with contributions from John Gardyne and actors from the NT Absolute Hell company.
