Project Details


Recently launched in collaboration with Dr Doug Cowie, the American Theatre Reading Group provides an opportunity for enthusiasts of American theatre to combine reading key works (A Streetcar Named Desire, Long Day's Journey into Night, Fences, and A Raisin in the Sun for the 2018/19 academic year), hearing extracts from the plays read out loud, and free, open discussion of these works in a casual, relaxed, and entertaining environment.
In addition to reading the plays, we have endeavoured (when possible) to host a series of screenings showing the most notable film adaptations of the plays explored. Participations encouraged to bring along questions, issues or any areas that interests them about the plays read to help the group reflect their own interests and explorations.
