Katharine Worth Building

Posted on 27/06/2013

This year the complex of buildings occupied by our Department of Drama & Theatre will be renamed the Katharine Worth Building, in honour of the founder of the department, 35 years ago.

Katharine Worth was the first female Professor of Drama in Britain. A distinguished expert in modern theatre and an iconic figure in the history of the discipline, she is also a leading authority on Samuel Beckett.

The complex comprises the former Sutherland House and our brand .
