Wednesdays, 11:30am - 1.30pm

Term dates:
22 July - 19 August 

This series of 5 fun script reading sessions will take a closer look at the works of some theatrical giants including Anton Chekov, Henrik Ibsen and Frank Wedekind. Participants will read sections of the plays aloud, and work with our Carne Trust Associate Director, Chelsey Gillard, to look at their themes, stories, writing styles and the historical context in a relaxed discussion. Digital copies of the plays, including Spring Awakening, 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: "These European writers from the early modernism movement still hugely influence the work we see onstage today. They vary hugely in style and it will be fascinating to get a closer look at how the plays work and hear them out loud with this brilliant and friendly group."

Once booked, you will recieve a Zoom invite on the day of each session.

Spaces are limited so please make sure to book.
