11: Why is it called a Play?

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

Students from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, who are currently training to be actors, will run workshops on ways to engage with theatrical experience; with games and exercises from finding a character to storytelling, they will share aspects of their training and in doing so discover why the theatrical event that we watch is called a play .
No experience is necessary – just curiosity and a sense of fun.
