I am a big fan of American writer Edward Albee and he is coming to Melboune to blab. I just got some tickets today.
Here are the details, so book now if you don’t want to miss out. And it’s free!
THE 2010 JOHN SUMNER LECTURE
EDWARD ALBEE IN CONVERSATION
Join us at the MTC Theatre to hear Edward Albee, three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and author ofWho’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Three Tall Women, and The Goat or Who is Sylvia? discuss his half century of writing for the stage.
In an interview with Radio National’s Amanda Smith, Albee will talk about his ongoing work encouraging and mentoring new writers and what might lie ahead for dramatists and theatres in the coming decades.
Since 2003, the John Sumner Lecture, named after MTC’s founding and longest-serving Artistic Director, has been delivered by an eminent person or arts practitioner on the subject of theatre and its role in cultural life. Don’t miss hearing one of the great figures in post-war American drama in conversation.
