The National Theatre: A Place for Plays

Paule Constable and Richard Pilbrow hosted a one-day Symposium on 30th October 2016 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the opening by Her Majesty the Queen of the National Theatre designed 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.
