Presented by The Actors' Workshop

Following on from John’s excellent masterclass on devising last term, this workshop will explore approaches to adapting (and scripting) existing stories for the stage:

• We will look at how and why texts might be suitable for adaptation.
• We will consider how theatre can best serve and bring to life the original text.
• We will look at approaches for discovering fresh ways to present events and characters contained within well known/loved stories.
• We will also consider ways to subvert and derail the original source material in order to highlight themes/events/characters in surprising ways.

John Nicholson is a Bristol-based actor/writer/director and has adapted 10 classic texts into radio plays for BBC Radio 4 and written 20 or so stage plays, including Baskervilles which ran in the West End. Three of his plays are published by Nick Hern books and are regularly licensed world-wide.
