This practical workshop will focus on Melodrama: its place in theatre history and its impact on later genres, including film.
You will learn about performance styles of the Victorian period, including the Language of Physical Passion, and you will study play-texts and writers ranging from Dickens to Dion Boucicault.
Melodrama is fun to play and fascinating to explore.
This will be an engaging and accessible workshop that is open to all levels.
The tutor Rosie has taught Melodrama as part of the Queen’s Drama degree.
