Christopher Hampton: Simplifying the Jungle | Jan 2013

In his lecture Simplifying The Jungle, Hampton will give a playwright’s insight into the role of the designer in the theatre. He follows previous speakers Sir Richard Eyre CBE, former director of the National Theatre, and award-winning stage designer and director Ultz.

The annual lectures were set up by University of the Arts London, which holds the Jocelyn Herbert Archive, to raise the profile and stimulate debate about the profession of stage design, and to honour Herbert (1917-2003) for her role in revolutionising the look and feel of post-war British theatre.
