Following the highly successful Easter School in 2017 we are running the initiative again this year and places are going fast.

The week-long residency is open to young people aged between 11 and 14, and will give them the opportunity to work together to explore a play text and devise their own piece of theatre from scratch.

Where? Roborough Studios, University of Exeter Streatham Campus, EX4 4SB.

When? Monday 9th – Friday 13th April 2018. Monday to Thursday 10am – 4pm; Friday 11am – 7pm (with a sharing of work at 6pm for friends and family).

Cost? The full week’s tuition (including an invitation for friends and family to the sharing of work) is £160 per participant.

The week’s tuition will be led by Education & Outreach Officer Lisa Hudson and supported by graduates of the University of Exeter. Lisa has extensive experience of teaching drama, leading workshops and directing young people in a range of creative projects.
