‘I must make up my mind which is right – society or I.’
A Doll’s House, Act III (Ibsen)
For over two centuries the rigorous rulings of the Lord Chamberlain saw plays such as Ibsen’s Ghosts banned from the UK stage. After 230 years of censorship the Theatres Act of 1968 supposedly ushered in a new era. In this event, artists and historians discuss pivotal moments in the history of censorship from a personal perspective and ask how we got to where we are today.
