Join ADFAS Camden (Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Societies), in this months’ Ibsen, Strindberg and Chekov, The Trinity; given by lecturer Giles Ramsay (The Arts Society). The end of the 19th Century saw a revolution in European drama as theatre began to address new and controversial topics such as sex, class and social unrest. Out of this age of upheaval emerged three of the greatest playwrights the world has ever known. This lecture looks at the reception their plays had in their own day and the legacy they have left to our own.

Giles has run theatre projects in Botswana, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya, Kosovo, Palestine, Mexico, Thailand and Zimbabwe and given numerous talks for institutions ranging from The Foundation for Mexican Literature in Mexico City to The Royal College of Physicians in London. He regularly lectures on the history and practice of theatre on the Queen Mary Two. Entry Cost Adult $30 - Light refreshments and wine included. Student $15
