The first conference arising from the AHRC-funded research project Screen Plays: Theatre Plays on British Television will be held at the University of Westminster on Friday 19 October 2012.
Screen Plays is concerned with all plays written for the theatre that have been produced for British television since 1930. The project documents and develops new critical approaches to the television presentation of these plays, seeking to understand the institutional, production, technological and aesthetic contexts for these adaptations within both broadcasting and British theatre.
