Shakespeare – from Reading to Performance

If you have ever wanted to make sense of and better appreciate the poetic imagery of Shakespeare, this two hour workshop in an informal and forgiving atmosphere will deconstruct and explore a well known speech from one of the plays and help you begin to understand the tools professional actors use to inhabit this language on stage. We will find the thought patterns, listen to the rhythms and sounds, and take the first tentative steps towards performing the speech as a group. We will then discuss further questions over a glass of wine or your preferred refreshment. All levels of previous experience are welcome including no experience at all, although a basic level of reading in English is advised. The only aim is to understand slightly more at the end of the evening than we did at the beginning. Open to all ages, but not aimed at primary level children.

Meet in the Telegraph Hill Playclub, Lower Park
(separate entrance off Erlanger Road)

7:30-9:30pm £5 (£2.50)
(Includes a glass of wine)
