Royal Holloway, University of London - All the home's a stage

November 18, 2010

Academics are recreating the once-fashionable art of staging plays in the home. As part of a project at Royal Holloway, University of London investigating the historical phenomenon and aiming to revive it, Judith Hawley, professor in the department of English, and Elaine McGirr, senior lecturer in English and drama, are holding a symposium and staging a performance devised by students. On 10 December, the great hall and kitchen of Chawton House in Hampshire will be transformed into a makeshift theatre, echoing a similar event that took place in 1803.
