This course will enable you to begin to engage practically and theoretically with Shakespeare’s plays.

Week one will concentrate on the challenge of performing Shakespearean texts, including taking part in Central’s specialist voice and movement training. The following weeks will develop the performance work by bringing in a critical perspective and evaluating the choices available to the actor.

During the course you will attend two productions of Shakespeare plays showing in London. In the past students have visited Shakespeare’s Globe, the Hampstead Theatre and The Actor’s Church.

You must have prepared a Shakespearean monologue before the start of the course (details will be given on acceptance of a place). You will work towards an informal showing at the end of the course.
