During this workshop the group will look at contemporary classics and new writing. Each actor will be assigned a section of text in advance to present to the group, either a monologue or a short scene.  We will look at a variety of different texts so we cover a wide range of topics and the questions that arise from them. If there is time there will be an informal Q&A at the end of the session.
