Beyond the Script

These workshops experience explore characters in scenarios and bring stories to life by taking a close look at extracts and expressing the ideas in performance. The student develops their understanding of the conventions of the script, how the play script presents characters and a closer look at how dialogue is presented in a play script. 

Opportunities are presented for students to plan, discuss and write a short script, before working with others to perform their work.

Each workshop experience shows how to bring fresh light and learning to almost every corner of the drama curriculum, enabling students to extend their understandings of the world, develop their imaginations and see things from different points of view.
