Online script reading sessions with our Carne Trust Associate Director, Chelsey Gillard.
Led by Chelsey Gillard
Price: £5 per session of £20 for all five
From Wednesday 17 March, 11.30am - 1.30pm
This series of fun script reading sessions will dive into five comedies by much loved British and Irish writers. We will read the plays out loud together, laughing as we go.
Once we've stopped giggling we will discuss the plays with our Carne Trust Associate Director, Chelsey Gillard, diving into their themes, stories, writing styles and the historical context in a relaxed conversation.
Digital copies of the plays will be provided and participants will be sent a link via email to join the online session each week.
Week One: Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
Week Two: Volpone by Ben Johnson
Week Three: Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde
Week Four: The Admirable Crichton by J.M. Barrie
Week Five: Pygmalion by G.B. Shaw
These classes cost £5 per session or £20 if you book all five.
There are only 15 spaces available, so please make sure you book in advance.
These classes will be run on Zoom - click here to download.
It will help if you can find somewhere in your home with a good internet connection, and if you have some, use headphones (ideally with a built in microphone) as this will help reduce feedback during the session.

A few words from past participants:
"I like theatre & plays & enjoy activities of this kind - particularly at the moment as I am in a shielding household. It is great to engage with others & feel like part of something outside of the house!"
"script reading classes gave me an opportunity to do something different and interact with a lovely group of people"
"There are times when my physicality is limiting... this has given me hope that participation can continue, regardless. Nice to meet new people."
"very enjoyable & nice to see some new faces"
