Thomas Nashe Conference: London

Thomas Nashe: Prose, Drama, and the Oral Culture of Early Modern London

An AHRC funded event jointly organised by The Thomas Nashe Project and Shakespeare’s Globe.

Saturday 20th May 2017

The Thomas Nashe Project is hosting a one-day symposium exploring the relationship between prose and drama, orality and print (and much more)!

The day will conclude with a ‘Read Not Dead’ staged reading of Thomas Nashe’s unsettling and disturbing prose work, Terrors of the Night, a story of nightmares and evil spirits told by candlelight in The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

The reading will be directed by Dr Tom Cornford (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama). The script has been adapted by Dr Kate De Rycker (Newcastle University), who will also introduce it.

You are welcome to come to either event or both.

The symposium is free but registration is necessary. Please contact Prof. Andrew Hadfield, University of Sussex (a.hadfield@sussex.ac.uk).

Tickets for the Read not Dead event (£20; £10) can be bought from Globe Education:
