The Play Circle | Thu 23 Nov | 7-9pm | £8.50 PAYG | 18+ yrs | Tutor Claire Williams | Warehouse

The Play Circle sessions create an informal environment in which participants read through and work with a pre-selected play in a “play read” capacity. Following the read-through, the play will then be discussed by the group over a brew. These sessions are a lovely and informal way to explore theatre in a social environment.

What will the class cover and how will it be taught?

The workshops will cover play reading and text exploration by working with professional Theatre Makers, Directors and Practitioners.

Who is it suitable for?

All abilities are welcome, but some interest in Theatre is helpful. The session may involve movement, voice and breathing techniques, if you have any additional requirements or needs in these areas please let us know before attending.

What do I need to bring?

All equipment and materials provided.
