The Quarry Theatre presents

Chris Megson: Verbatim Theatre in the 21st Century

Monday 10th September, 6:30PM

What is verbatim theatre and why has it risen to prominence in the twenty-first century?

What is involved (and what is at stake) in basing the script for a theatrical performance on the testimony of real people?

How do performers and directors respond to the challenge of ‘staging the real’, and what conclusions might we draw from this discussion about theatre’s place in the contemporary world?

Drawing on a range of practitioners and productions, this lecture explores the methods, possibilities and limitations of verbatim theatre and, in so doing, prompts a consideration of theatre’s role in the wider public sphere.
