Seven days after Remembrance Day on the centenary of the Armistice of The Great War, we are pleased to welcome Tom Morris. Artistic Director of the Bristol Old Vic and co-director of the play War Horse, which returns to The National Theatre this autumn.
In an informal afternoon audience, Tom will talk about the influences on his theatre making of Winnicott’s work on transitional space and the transitional object. In particular, he will speak about his use of puppetry in live theatre, which found its most powerful expression in the remarkable bringing to life of “Joey” in the theatre adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling novel War Horse.
