Talk: The Play’s The Thing … Speaker: Robin Mukherjee Robin’s work has included film, the stage, television and radio. He was nominated for a BAFTA in 2010, and won the Australian Writer’s Guild Award for Best Adapted Screenplay last year. His first feature film won the Audience Award at the London Film Festival. His most recent film was Australia’s official entry for the Oscars in 2012. He lectures in Scriptwriting at Bath Spa University. We’re all familiar with drama. But what is it, exactly? A diversion? An illusion? A morally instructive charade? We all have a sense of ourselves. But who are we, really? Constant, true and beautiful? If not, then what? Could it be that drama is all of the above, but above all an instrument of self-knowledge? Is drama itself constant, true and beautiful? Can we, by its means, be divested of what we are not to become who we are? In this talk we shall explore the relationship between the Play and the Self in drama, using one of its greatest practitioners, William Shakespeare, as our guide. Cost: £13 per person. Please contact The Hamblin Trust, 01243 572109 for further details.
