Between September 2025 and September 2026 Theatre and Performance Studies at Warwick celebrates its 50th Birthday (insert balloons, party poppers and a huge cake here)! It was in 1975 that the Department of Theatre Studies was created and took on its first students, when Michael Booth, an established scholar of nineteenth century theatre, moved from Canada to England to become its founding Professor and Chair. He was joined in 1976 by Richard Beacham and Clive Barker and, within the next two years, by Geraldine Cousin (1977) and Margaret Shewring (1978).
