Can We Talk About This?

Event type:
Location: Lyttleton Theatre, National Theatre, London

DV8/National TheatreDV8’s Artistic Director Lloyd Newson joins a National Theatre platform discussion at the Lyttleton Theatre about the new production addressing themes of multiculturalism and freedom of speech.

From the 1989 book burnings of Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses, to the murder of filmmaker Theo Van Gogh and the controversy of the ‘Muhammad cartoons’ in 2005, DV8’s new production examines how these events have reflected and influenced multicultural policies, freedom of speech and censorship. Can We Talk About This? is based on real voices and interviews, with leading figures from across the religious, political, cultural and social spectrum, including MPs, high profile authors and journalists.

“Can we talk about this?” runs at the Lyttleton from 9th March 2012.

Tickets for the platform event are £4 (£3 concessions).
