About the event

Shakespeare and Comedy? You can't be serious...

Join award-winning 1623 theatre company to explore methods and techniques used within Shakespeare's Comedies, which have now been entertaining audiences for more than 400 years.  

1623 associate artist Nathan Masterson - who has performed in many Shakespearean comedies including As You Like It, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest - will lead this practical workshop, which gives participants the opportunity to step into the shoes of some of Shakespeare's best-loved comic characters and experiment with ways of releasing their comic potential for a modern audience.

This workshop is suitable for all ages and abilities.
