Playwrights & Plays

Have you ever wanted to get a deeper understanding of the script behind your favourite play or movie? In these three talks experienced actor and director Jacqueline Goddard will guide you deeper into the work of some of our beloved playwrights and their plays.

Wednesday 6 February: Oscar Wilde

Travel into the world of Oscar Wilde, poet, playwright and famous wit. This talk about the man and two of his most popular plays, The importance of Being Ernest and An Ideal Husband, will give an insight in to his, so called, genius.               

Wednesday 6 March: Tennessee Williams

This month Jacqueline will introduce you to the Pulitzer prize winning playwright Tennessee Williams through two of his most famous plays, a Street car Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. In this session you’ll see clips from these iconic and movies and  have the opportunity to discover and discuss what inspired William’s work.

Wednesday 3 April: Arthur Miller

During the 1950s, Arthur Miller used 17th-century Salem as an analogy to comment on the 'red scare' that was gripping the USA.  In Death of a Salesman he captured the internal turmoil of the ‘ordinary' man. Enjoy an evening of discussion and discovery and learn more about this award-winning playwright.

Your ticket includes a free drink.
