key information

Date / Time: Monday 15th April

Duration: 11.00 - 13.00

Venue: Studio 79

Practitioner: Roy Alexander Weise

New Plays VS Old Plays

Location: Studio79

This is definitely not a workshop about which type of theatre is better, nor an attempt to oust Shakespeare from contemporary theatre (Although that would make for an exciting session). This is about the responsibilities and roles that different creatives and performers have working on new texts and old texts. Half practical and half theoretical, this workshop will aim to sharpen our tools and try to figure out which hat is for which occasion.

Roy is the 19th annual winner of the James Menzies-Kitchin Award and was nominated at the 2018 Evening Standard Awards for the ‘Emerging Talent’ Award. Credits: Nine Night (National and West End), The Dark (Fuel), The Mountaintop (Young Vic and UK Tour), The Trick (Bush), The Ugly One (Park Theatre), Br'er Cotton (Theatre503). He is Associate Artist at Donmar Warehouse. 

Unfortunately Studio79 is not fully accessible (There is no step free access and is up two flights of stairs). This is far from ideal and does not meet our hopes. If you have access requirements and would like to attend this workshop please email [email protected] and we will work our hardest to resolve the situation.
