Lecture puts theatre at centre stage
HOLLYWOOD and Broadway star Alan Cumming championed Scottish theatre at a Glasgow University lecture last night.
The actor had been invited to deliver the Cameron Lecture by theatre director John Tiffany, whose credits include Harry Potters & The Cursed Child and Black Watch.
The event was set up in memory of John’s mentor and friend Dr Alasdair Cameron, who died 25 years ago this year.
Cummings used his speech to celebrate Scotland’s theatre tradition and its champions.
