The collection consists of CDs and DVDs (audio and video) of recorded interviews with practitioners from the alternative theatre movement in Britain in the late 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s, along with related material.
The Unfinished Histories Project is a collaboration between theatre curator Susan Croft, director and voice coach Jessica Higgs, and In Tandem TC.
