Old Library 2.21, Newcastle University, 4pm-6.30pm

Join MEMS (Medieval and Early Modern Studies) at Newcastle University for this convivial, theatrical event.

We are delighted to welcome Professor Jessica Winston (Idaho State University), who will be speaking on ‘Between Theatre and Reading: Early English Plays on BBC Radio (1956–1957) and Traditions of “Partial Performance”’.

Professor Winston’s talk will be followed by a staged reading of the little-known Tudor interlude The Disobedient Child: a play that features a shrewish wife, a troublesome son, a sentimental song, a surprisingly educated ‘maid-cook’, and the Devil himself! Drinks and nibbles will accompany the performance.

This event is organised by Dr Emma Whipday (Newcastle), with collaborators Dr Freyja Cox Jensen (Exeter) and Dana Key (UCL), and musical direction by Dr Oskar Cox Jensen (Queen Mary). It is funded by MEMS and the Leverhulme Trust.

For catering purposes, please register here by 28th February
