Regional Variations (2)

A look at the regional theatre and its audience.
The theatre outside London is more exciting now than it has been for many years. Many talented people now choose to live and work in regional theatres, and this is reflected in a high quality of production. London is still the centre of the commercial theatre, but in the regions a new kind of theatre is being born, a theatre with new aims, seeking a new audience.
In this film Don Taylor, who is himself a playwright who has had several plays performed in the regions, discusses the new regional theatre with a wide range of people who work in it, and from these discussions a definition of the place of theatre in modern society begins to emerge.
