Review this show


On 26 September 1968 the Theatres Act abolished a censorship that had controlled plays in Great Britain since 1737. The next day the musical Hair opened in London with rock anthems and nude hippies. Expression was free.

Fifty years on, what are the forces at work that may be challenging freedom of expression? Who or what are the new Lord Chamberlains? How free are our performing arts?

This panel discussion launches Shakespeare’s Globe series on Shakespeare and Censorship and forms part of the Guildhall School’s Reflective Conservatoire Conference.
