The Arts Society Leicester present David Garrick: Actor and Impresario
Speaker – Giles Ramsay
After the trauma of the English Civil War came the Restoration, a period of loucheness and scandal. With the return of a King and the arrival of the first English actresses the foundations were set for a more modern theatre to emerge in the eighteenth century under the influence of the greatest actor/manager of the age – David Garrick.
