Style & The Actor: Restoration Comedy



This exciting period of drama marked the first appearance of women on the professional stage, and gives us a full range of some of the most comic characters in the canon. Be prepared to have fun!

You will explore the style of acting required, through the practical workshopping of a selection of play-texts by major playwrights of the time, containing some of the wittiest lines ever written for the stage.

By working on snippets and scenes, exploring body language, and learning the language of the fan, you will understand what it takes to play the rogues, rakes, dandies and damsels of the Restoration stage.
