This special event, co-hosted with GCU London and Scots in London, celebrated 9 years of the National Theatre of Scotland which has seen the company swiftly establish itself as one of the world’s most exciting theatre companies.
Neil Murray, Executive Producer of the National Theatre of Scotland and award-winning presenter Kaye Adams discussed the company’s business journey, theatre’s unique attitude to risk, the company’s growth, international work and the day-to-day business of running a ‘theatre without walls’. The discussion was then followed by a networking reception.
