Description

The essence of good theatre is simplicity itself: believable characters, gripping stories and a seamless, convincing production. To understand how to achieve this we need to understand the roots of theatre. In this engaging and informative program we take a comprehensive look at the history of theatre and drama, taking students from the ancient Greeks to the medieval Mystery plays, from the Renaissance to the Restoration, finishing up with Modern Theatre, exploring different play styles, staging and acting. This is a brilliant overview of theatre that stands alone or can be used as a stimulus for devised work, further research projects or for developing a better understanding of historical context.
