Event Description

London’s Theatreland: stirring stories of dramatic triumph & disaster. Explore with us the evolution of the theatre in London with a talk illustrating the histories of playhouses and stories about actors who have performed in them. We find out which is the oldest of the West End theatres, what can go wrong during performances, and go backstage to see how the wonderful shows are created. As Alfred Hitchcock said, “Theatre is Life with the dull bits cut out.”

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
