Dario Fo and Political Theatre in Scotland

Thursday 13 October 6pm, Traverse Theatre

This panel discussion will be chaired by Olga Taxidou, Professor of Drama at the University of Edinburgh.  The panel comprises playwright Peter Arnott, Professor Federica Pedriali, Head of Italian at the University of Edinburgh and Dr Linda Mackenney, Head of English at George Watson’s School and writer on Scottish popular theatre.  They were to have been joined by David Greig, Artistic Director of the Lyceum; sadly he can’t now make it but we still look forward to a stimulating discussion on the relationships between the theatre of Dario Fo and the traditions of radical political theatre in Scotland.
