by Aristophanes

The day will be rooted in rehearsal technique, and all the activities are designed to be usable and adaptable for teachers delivering A’ Level Drama & Theatre Studies.


Working with a professional director, you will undertake a practical exploration of plot, language, forms, characterisation and stagecraft to communicate ideas to an audience as a director.

A range of rehearsal techniques and devices will be explored practically, with a focus on directorial approaches and how the director works with a company to achieve an overall concept in performance.

There will be an opportunity for reflection and Q&A.


You will leave the day armed with a range of rehearsal techniques, directorial devices and session activities to enrich your students’ understanding of approaching the play from the viewpoint of director.

And yet you are fool enough, it seems, to dare to war with me, when for your faithful ally you might win me easily.
