Commissioned for the Finborough Theatre by Artistic Director Neil McPherson, and produced by Development Producer Marie Bobin, finboroughtheatreforum is a new initiative, a monthly discussion forum, bringing artistic practitioners and voices from various other disciplines together to challenge the practice and meaning of theatre.
Encouraging dialogue across all art forms, finborough theatre forum aims to be an accessible and non-pretentious opportunity to exchange opposing viewpoints as well as a birthplace for new collaborations.
The evening will usually be held on the last Monday of every Finborough main house show, starting at 7.30pm, and feature an hour-long informal discussion forum with specially invited guests, followed by an open session at the bar until closing time!
