21: Why is it called a play?
In cooperation with RADA - The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, London
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.
