Live Theatre & Dead People

Recording from Tom Stoppard’s talk, ‘Live Theatre & Dead People’ for CVHF, Sunday, 30th June 2013.

We were thrilled to welcome Britain’s greatest living playwright to the Chalke Valley. The author of award-winning plays such as Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Jumpers and The Real Thing as well as the screenplays for Empire of the Sun, Anna Karenina and Shakespeare in Love, will discuss the idea of dramatic licence in theatre and film. What does drama owe to history? After all, a biographical play is not a biography. This is a rare opportunity to hear one of the greatest writers in the world.
