Communicado and “Popular Experimentalism”

  • Mark Brown


If Giles Havergal’s Citizens Theatre can be credited with beginning the European Modernist renaissance in Scottish theatre, it might be argued that the birth of the touring company Communicado marked the next major step forward in that development. Established in Edinburgh in 1983 by Gerry Mulgrew, Alison Peebles, and Rob Pickavance, the company brought to the Scottish stage both a passion for modern, European theatre and a notable regard for Scottish culture, including Scottish theatrical and literary texts (the latter of which was all but absent at the Citizens).
