As a part of the critically-acclaimed run of Peter Barnes’ The Ruling Class, directed by Jamie Lloyd, starring James McAvoy, a new Traf Extra event is announced, debating who holds the power in modern day Britain.
Traf Extras are an array of fiery debates, masterclasses and rehearsed readings that accompany each Trafalgar Transformed production and are designed specifically to highlight issues raised by each piece. By engaging with the world outside the theatre’s walls, Traf Extras help to stimulate open debate and dialogue around the issues central to each play, inspiring a deeper connection with the onstage action. More events will be announced shortly.
THE RULING CLASS PANEL DEBATE
Join the esteemed panel of guests as they consider the questions:
DO THE RULING CLASS STILL HOLD THE POWER OR DOES BIG BUSINESS HAVE MORE INFLUENCE IN BRITAIN? WHO RULES BRITAIN?
Panellists include journalist, author and editor Rachel Johnson, celebrated actor and writer Forbes Masson, bestselling author and columnist George Monbiot and Guardian columnist and former BBC social affairs editor Polly Toynbee.
With the General Election upon us, and as a society increasingly subjected to economic inequality and class friction, the time is now to tackle the question surrounding the distribution of power in Britain today. The Ruling Class panel debate is a free Traf Extra event for anyone with or without a ticket to The Ruling Class.
