The National Theatre: A Place for Plays ABTT Symposium
Paule Constable and Richard Pilbrow hosted a one-day Symposium on 30th October 2016 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the opening by Her Majest the Queen by Sir Denys Lasdun. The National Theatre: A Place for Plays, presented by the Association of British Theatre Technicians in association with the National Theatre, was about Theatre and Architecture: a discussion, a confrontation, a misunderstanding or a collaboration?
This book contains a transcription of the discourse, debate and dissent that took place on the day.
