We are delighted to announce another speaker at the conference: Diana Quick will give a talk to complete our Sunday morning programme.
Diana Quick started her career while at Oxford, where she was the first female president of the O U D S. She has played at the National Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Royal Court and extensively in the West End.
Probably best known as Julia Flyte in Brideshead Revisited, she continues to work across film, TV, radio and theatre. Recent theatre includes Electra at the Old Vic, Babetteâ€™s Feast at the Printroom, and Mother Christmas at Hampstead Theatre. She was Molotova in the film The Death of Stalin, and has just been exploring the last wild woman of the woods in Thea Smileyâ€™s new play The Last Woodwose at Hightide Festival.
She translated and performed de Beauvoirâ€™s Woman Destroyed in London and New York, published by Faber. Virago has published an essay she contributed to 50 Shades of Feminism, a survey of where feminism has got to in the contemporary world, and her memoir A Tug on the Thread, an investigation into her fatherâ€™s hidden childhood growing up in colonial India.
For 7 years she was Director of the Aldeburgh Documentary Festival.
