Peter Nichols at the British Library (2/2)

9th September 2008


Q&A. The playwright answers questions from the audience at the British Library conference, The Golden Generation? New Light on British Theatre between 1945 and 1968, held on 8-9 September 2008. Part of the AHRC-sponsored Theatre Archive Project, a collaboration between the British Library and the University of Sheffield. Recorded live.

In the 1950s, the curtain rose on middle-class rooms with French windows – any variation on that was considered avant-garde.
