Tom McGrath: On Screen
Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand
This biographical screening will be introduced by McGrath himself, via STV’s 1988 In Verse. A rare opportunity to see Off the Page, an STV interview with McGrath from 1990 in which he addresses subjects ranging from his early counterculture experiences to his important contributions to Scottish theatre. Wholly Communion captures the famous 'International Poetry Incarnation' staged at The Albert Hall in 1965. McGrath performed at this event alongside talents such as Allen Ginsberg and Scot Alexander Trocchi.
