As a partnership of leading theatres in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales embarks on an epic cycle of new play commissions which will explore Britain’s changing relationship with Europe, this panel discussion asks “How should theatre respond to and reflect the changing role of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Europe over the next decade?” Working in collaboration, Royal & Derngate Northampton, Lyric Theatre Belfast, The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Sherman Theatre Cardiff will bring together a diverse group of emerging and established artists, thinkers and practitioners from across Europe, with the aim of creating a body of original theatrical productions that offer a unique insight into our nation’s past and present while imagining the possibilities for its future.
