Andy Kesson, ‘”Peculiar houses”: building theatres in early modern London’
5 October, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
We will welcome Dr Andy Kesson (Reader in the Department of English and Creative Writing at the University of Roehampton) as our first Visiting Speaker of 2017-2018.
Drawing on his work as Principal Investigator for the AHRC-funded Before Shakespeare project, Dr Kesson will look at the first thirty years of the London playhouses, and ask what the last thirty years of scholarly activity working on the archival, archaeological, and performative evidence for these buildings has told us.
Please note that this event will not take place during the usual lunch slot, but will instead start at 5pm in the Diamond, Lecture Theatre 05.
