5pm - 6.30pm
Following our extremely rewarding Immersive Theatre School at Beer Quarry Caves, it seemed like there was a real appetite for more year-round opportunities. Four of Swords is therefore teaming up with Exeter Phoenix to offer a unique course in adapting Greek Myths into a compelling, supercool theatre scripts.
All our family are very grateful Theatre School. You helped our daughter to discover and develop her hidden talents! You also taught our daughter how to work in a team, to believe in herself, to develop confidence! You are doing a great job! Parent feedback from Immersive Theatre School, Summer 2023
We will be using the myth of Odysseus and the Cyclops as our starting point, weaving in other inspirations and analysing different versions of the myths, and culminating in a table read with a selection of professional actors, giving direct and tailored feedback to the students on their scripts.
The plan is that the best ideas from these sessions will provide the basis of the script for our 2024 Immersive Theatre School production, which will be EVEN BIGGER AND BETTER than this year’s!
INTRODUCING OUR TUTORS
