Several of J.B. Priestley’s plays, notably An Inspector Calls and the other Time Plays, continue to enthrall and educate modern audiences. But Priestley’s role in the theatre went far beyond writing for the stage.
Professor Maggie Gale will be exploring Priestley’s place in the theory and practice of mid-twentieth century drama in the J.B. Priestley Society Annual Lecture for 2012. This will take place on Saturday 10 March 2012 at 2pm in the JSB Lecture Theatre, Richmond Building, University of Bradford. The event is open to the public. For more information and to book, see the Society’s website. Society members have their AGM in the same venue that morning.
