Women, Small Nations and British Theatre Q&A
With Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director, and Lucy Davies, Executive Producer, at the Royal Court Theatre
The event is chaired by Professor Steve Blandford
For the first time in its history the Royal Court Theatre is being run by women. How is this significant? What do they bring from the small nations of Scotland, where Vicky was the first Artistic Director of the National Theatre of Scotland, and Wales, where Lucy was National Theatre Wales’ first female Executive Producer? How will they continue the Royal Court’s legacy to innovate, discover and surprise? What is the future for women in British Theatre?
This event is supported by The Centre for Media and Culture in Small Nations at the University of South Wales and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and the Royal Court Theatre.
