Brickbats in Cyberspace:
How blogging is changing the landscape of theatre criticism in London and beyond

Monday, 1 December, 2008
at The Royal Court Theatre, Sloane Square, London

A panel discussion considers the emerging role of blogging in opening up critical dialogue about theatre and in creating new career avenues for critical writers. With the rise of online content and the blogosphere, is the role of the daily newspaper critic becoming obsolete?

The panel included:
Charles Spencer, lead theatre critic for The Daily Telegraph; Andrew Dickson, arts editor for guardian.co.uk, Judith Dimant, producer of Complicite, and leading bloggers and theatre professionals.

Sponsored by HARC (the Humanities and Arts Research Centre), the Faculty of Arts, and the Department of Drama and Theatre, Royal Holloway, University of London
