The Architectural History of the Thorndike Theatre: A 1960s 'rep' in context

The Leatherhead Theatre - opened in 1969 as the Thorndike Theatre - was one of a significant number of new theatres built in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s. It is one of the best examples of the period. In an illustrated talk on Wednesday 11 November, Dr Alistair Fair, a historian at the University of Edinburgh who is currently writing a book about post-war British theatre architecture, will explain how and why the Thorndike was designed as it was. What ideas shaped its design and why is it an important building?
