Katharine Worth: 1922-2015

Katharine Worth: 1922-2015

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Katharine Worth, founder of the Department of Drama and Theatre at Royal Holloway.Katharine, an alumna of Bedford College, set up a joint degree in English and Drama at Royal Holloway in 1978, and launched the single honours degree and, with it, the Department of Drama and Theatre a couple of years later. Katharine was a remarkable and historic figure in the discipline of Drama and Theatre; she pioneered the integrated practical and theoretical study of theatre that is still reflected in the curriculum today.
