Screen Plays is thrilled to announce details of our fourth season of screenings at BFI Southbank in January 2015. Following on from our successful seasons of Greek plays, Jacobean tragedy and Edwardian plays, this season will highlight rarely seen television productions of theatre plays by major American playwrights. Among those whose works will be shown are Tennessee Williams, Eugene O’Neill, Arthur Miller and Clifford Odets, but the season also includes some more surprising choices as well. Continue reading

Screen Plays

Welcome to the blog of the AHRC-funded research project Screen Plays: Theatre Plays on British Television. The project is based at the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) in the School of Media, Arts and Design at the University of Westminster and runs from June 2011 to February 2015.

The project is concerned with all plays written for the theatre produced for British television since 1930. We will publish a database of these productions, a book and journal articles, and we will organise screenings, conferences and other events.

News of our activities will feature here, with reviews, research discoveries, drafts of our ideas and much more. We very much hope that you will contribute to the discussions.
