Staging Mortality: Provocation & Conversation
Fri 18 November 2016, 18:30 – 20:00 GMT
What can we learn about mortality from contemporary theatre? How can dramatists and theatre-makers help us to understand this quintessential aspect of our humanity? Theatre has an ephemeral quality. It also has the potential to make us uniquely aware of our finite existence. Adrian Curtin, from the University of Exeter, will discuss this topic and enter into conversation with award-winning dramatist Kaite O’Reilly, whose recent play Cosy offers a darkly comic take on ‘making an exit’.
This event is part of the 2016 Being Human festival.
