Play On : Contemporary Theatre Architecture in Britain

This book documents and celebrates Britain’s contemporary theater architecture. It is about the conception, design, and delivery of spaces for drama between 2008 and 2018, a period of economic recession and financial austerity that has nonetheless seen a significant number of well-received theater-building projects. Intended not only for theater enthusiasts but also for individuals and organizations that may be contemplating a capital project of their own, Play On provides detailed "contemporary histories" of ten recent projects. It includes new theaters, like Liverpool’s prize-winning Everyman Theatre and Cast in Doncaster, as well as major refurbishment and restoration projects such as the National Theatre in London and the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow. Architects whose work is discussed include Haworth Tompkins, Aedas Arts Team, Bennetts Associates, Richard Murphy Architects, and Page\Park. An extended introductory section sets the case studies in their historical and contemporary contexts and draws out key themes, including sustainability, accessibility, and the need for theaters to be efficient yet welcoming public spaces.
