London Theatre Seminar 2024

The London Theatre Seminar is an inter-collegiate seminar hosted by the Centre for Contemporary Theatre and attracts participants from all theatre departments in London. The seminar is a public forum for the development of theatre and performance scholarship and its inter-collegiate and collaborative aspects are central to the productively speculative nature of its enquiry.


The Centre for Contemporary Theatre are pleased to announce London Theatre Seminar’s forthcoming 2024 schedule, which will feature a range of provocative and challenging talks, panels, and roundtables, across disciplines. No need to book for any events.
