A theatre is a civic space, it has a physical presence and role in the life of a city. But can a play be a space as well? Can a play function like a city square and become a place of meeting and protest, entertainment and storytelling?

In The Constructed Space, David Greig will look at theatre’s origins in Athens, its links to democracy and citizenship, and discuss the role theatre can play now in shaping and transforming the communal life of a city.

David Greig is an acclaimed and multi award-winning playwright who became the Artistic Director of The Lyceum in 2016. David’s most notable plays include The EventsThe Strange Undoing of Prudencia HartMidsummerDunsinane and Europe. David also wrote the book for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which opened in the West End in 2013 and recently transferred to Broadway.
