EFC Ludowyk’s Inspirations in Theatre in Lanka marked by A Peradeniya ‘Set’ in 2019

A Note from Michael Roberts: “EFC Ludowyk was from my home town in Galle and a close family friend of my elder sisters. About 5-8 days back, some spark led me to initiate a scheme to promote a set of appreciative assessment os his influence on learning, scholarship,  historical studies and theatrical life in Ceylon and Sri Lanka during the span of his adult life. In setting out thus I came across a memorial to his theatre work initiated by my old friend Haig Karunaratne, as effervescent a person and performer as you can ask for…..

So, here are some ‘snaps’ from that performative encore to Lyn Ludowyk in 2019 set up by PERABEAT



The 19th E.F.C. Ludowyk Memorial Lecture delivered by Mr. Haig Karunaratne on “Theatre Life and Theatre Building in Sri Lanka: Memories and Observations” was held on 4th of September 2019 at the Senate Room, University of Peradeniya.











Maureen and Jayantha Dhanapala graced the occasion…. and so did Gananath and Ranjini Obeyesekere
