Birkbeck Theatre Conversations presents

Original Practices?

How much do we now know about the playhouses of Elizabethan London, and the working practices of the companies who performed in them? How might this inflect the work of today’s directors and performers of Elizabethan drama?

A public forum with:

Julian Bowsher, theatre archaeologist, Museum of London

Professor Tiffany Stern, University College, Oxford, author of Rehearsal from Shakespeare to Sheridan and Documents of Performance

Ben Crystal, actor and writer, author of Shakespeare on Toast and co-author of Shakespeare’s Words

Daniel Winder, director, Iris Theatre Company

Chaired by Michael Dobson, Professor of Shakespeare Studies, Birkbeck College

February 10th, 6.30-8pm, 32 Tavistock Square. Refreshments. All welcome.
