This event is in the past.
Rounding out what has been an outstanding eight weeks, the final Owlets lecture of term will be delivered on Friday 26th November (8:30pm - Corpus Auditorium) by Paul Roseby.
Roseby is the current Artistic Director of the National Youth Theatre and has been a prolific director, broadcaster and writer.
Having started out his career as a member of the National Youth Theatre in the 1980s, he soon returned to assist with its workshops and led the company's prison outreach programme. He has always combined a love of theatre with a social conscience and his work often reflects pressing social issues. For example, he has directed plays concerning internet sex, binge drinking, knife crime, and public attitudes to gay politicians. He also recently directed 'When Romeo Met Juliet', which brought together actors from two schools in Coventry with very different socio-economic backgrounds. The whole casting, rehearsal, and performance process was made into a documentary for BBC2.
As the head of one of the most vibrant theatre groups in the country, and the hotbed of so much up-and-coming theatrical talent, his lecture is not one to be missed!
