The Soho Theatre at 50
November 23, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
To mark the 50th anniversary of London’s renowned Soho Theatre, the University of Westminster has invited its co-founder, and original artistic director, Fred Proud to direct a reading of the theatre’s very first production – Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s One Autumn Evening. The play is a darkly comic thriller which examines where the responsibilities of the artist begin and end.
The reading takes place in the ‘reclaimed’ Soho Poly basement, which became Soho Theatre’s home throughout the 1970s and 80s. Here, through its pioneering model of ‘lunchtime theatre’, it helped to launch the careers of actors, writers and directors such as Pam Gems, David Edgar, Timberlake Wertenbaker, Bob Hoskins and Barrie Keeffe. To be followed by an interview with Fred Proud, and a drinks reception.
This event will take place between 1:00pm and 3:30pm on Friday 23 November.
