Event description

Description

Bill (William) Gaskill was one of the most influential theatre directors in post-war UK theatre. He helped define the mission of the Royal Court in its early days and directed many celebrated productions for the Royal Court, the National Theatre and the RSC. He was also a dedicated teacher, mentor and friend to many writers and directors such as Max Stafford-Clark, Peter Gill and Nadia Latif. Theatre artists, critics and scholars will discuss Bill Gaskill’s work and influences in a series of discussions over the day, convened by Birkbeck’s Rob Swain and David Eldridge. Contributors include Peter Gill, Professor Dan Rebellato, Nicholas Wright, Max Stafford-Clark, Wunmi Mosaku, Christopher Hampton, Ken Cranham and Nadia Latif.

This event is part of Birkbeck Arts Week 2017 - see the full programme here.
