2 Mar 2023 Once Only Event
Join them for a virtual conversation between one of the great playwrights of our age and his biographer, the doyenne of the genre, Dame Hermione Lee, to be moderated by Stoppard aficionado Professor Glyn Davis AC, Secretary of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
Sir Tom was only 29 when his first major play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, was staged at the National Theatre in 1967. In a career spanning over 50 years, he has been described by one critic as “a formidable brain box with a capacity for jokes”. He has written for film, television, radio and theatre with credits including Travesties, Arcadia, The Coast of Utopia and in 2020, Leopoldstadt.
The screening of a pre-recorded conversation between Stoppard, Lee and Davis will be followed by a live conversation between Stoppard (appearing via livestream), the internationally acclaimed playwright Suzie Miller (Prima Facie) and multi award-winning theatre director Simon Phillips.
Please note: Sir Tom Stoppard will be livestreamed from London, UK. Dame Hermione Lee will participate in the pre-recorded conversation, but will not be part of the live conversation.
