Bristol theatre of the 1950s and 1960s

Fowler, Dawn M.

While Bristol films of the post-war era have seen both celebration and academic focus over the last couple of years the regional history of radical Bristolian theatre has received little scholarly attention. In fact, three of the most important British playwrights of the 1960s and beyond, Tom Stoppard, Peter Nichols, and Charles Wood were working together at the Bristol Evening Post in the late 1950s and early 1960s. All three writers went on to achieve international success through film and television work, but it is the early plays, presented in emerging spaces such as the now defunct Bristol Arts Centre that form the basis of this study.
