In this workshop the group will look at classical and contemporary plays (including 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 texts to cover a range of points about auditioning for theatre, and, time dependent, the session will end with an informal Q&A.
