INSET DAY:  VERBATIM THEATRE, WITH MAX STAFFORD-CLARK AND ROBIN SOANS

About

Saturday 22 October 11am – 5pm
 
Verbatim theatre involves making plays from real people’s words. In this INSET day, you’ll explore verbatim theatre with two of its key exponents and practitioners: Max Stafford-Clark, Director of Out of Joint and former Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre; and writer Robin Soans. Playwright Stella Feehily, who has used verbatim techniques as a starting point for making more fictionalised work, will also share her experiences.
 
Verbatim theatre has become a vital and vibrant part of the theatre landscape. Its techniques offer students a rewarding and distinctive way of making theatre and telling stories, and this INSET is designed to provide teachers with ideas and case studies that they can share with students. The day will focus on the process of creating a piece of theatre from research and interviews, discussing previous Out of Joint verbatim productions and using Max’s much-studied rehearsal methods.
 
We’ll use two plays by Robin Soans: his headline-grabbing play Talking To Terrorists, and last year’s acclaimed Crouch Touch Pause Engage which brought together the stories of gay rugby icon Gareth Thomas with those of young people from his home town, Bridgend.  A recording of the latter production will be available to watch in advance.
