NW Drama Colloquium (tomorrow!)

Dear all,

I just wanted to send round the programme for next week's North West Renaissance Drama Colloquium ( at the Rylands. The day includes a keynote by Nicholas Royle (Sussex) as well as presentations from four of our third year undergraduates, who some of you will have taught. Full registration is £10 (£5 students), but Manchester staff are very welcome just to drop by for individual panels if they are of interest. Just let us know via or email me.

All best wishes,
James Smith
