  FESTIVAL NEWS

BRIAN FREELAND
SPEAKER, PLAYWRIGHT, and now AUTHOR

Brian Freeland started in the theatre in 1959, direct from National Service, working with the Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, Scottish Opera, Sadlers Wells Royal Ballet and Joan Littlewood’s Theatre Workshop company.

For the British Council he has toured extensively abroad with dance and drama companies including three residencies in the Middle East, eight tours of the Indian sub-continent, and two circumnavigations of the globe.

Since ‘retirement’ he has lived in France, Scotland and,
now, Sussex, directing, writing scripts, giving talks
and - at last - writing the long-promised autobiography.

“Thanks for a great talk. From the reactions of your audience it was clear that you very much hit the spot! At a time when audiences are increasingly diverted by Powerpoint presentations it is refreshing to find a speaker who can hold a group enthralled with the spoken word alone. It is something you are able to achieve in spades! Thank you again for your support of the NT Bristol Centre’s Talks programme”.       Dave Moore.

Returning to Bristol NTC on Saturday 16th December 2017 with GEORGE BERNARD SHAW: PLAYING THE CLOWN
