Workshops for Students

Introducing Almeida Productions

A pre-show workshop designed to introduce students to the key themes and context of the play and prepare them for analysing and evaluating the performance. Taking inspiration from the rehearsal room these workshop provide students with a practical understanding of the director’s approach to interpreting the text and staging the production.

Exploring Almeida Productions

A post-show workshop examining the creative decisions made by the director in relation to style, character and design together with a consideration of the audience’s response to the play. Students will take on the role of theatre-makers and practically evaluate the effectiveness of these decisions by exploring alternative ways of staging key moments from the play.

This workshop is designed to stimulate a critical response to the play and support the written assessment component of the Drama curriculum’s units of experiencing live performance as well as the Arts Award Bronze and Silver.
