These fun and friendly sessions will explore the work of playwrights from the restoration period. Participants will read aloud texts from the period, and work with our Carne Trust Associate Director, Chelsey Gillard, to look at their themes, stories, writing styles and the historical context. Digital copies of plays including The Man of Mode by George Etheredge and The Rover by Aphra Behn will be provided and participants will be given a link to join each weekly session.
These classes cost £5 per week or £20 if you book all five.
Chelsey says: "I’m very excited that we will be exploring this unique era of playwriting which delighted audiences when theatres reopened after an 18-year ban. Theatre became a way to celebrate and reflect on society so it's the perfect inspiration as we wait to also re-open our doors."
Once booked, you will recieve a Zoom invite on the day of each session.
Spaces are limited so please make sure to book.
