Intensive Teasing Out the Story with RH Thompson
Sat. March 30, 2019 10am-1pm
Sat. April 6, 2019 10am-1pm
Sat. April 13, 2019 10am-1pm
Using monologues and short scenes, the group will listen for the story that lies beneath the scene.
We will work both 'on' and 'off book', and both 'on' and 'off' our feet. We will identify some of the tools that actors and directors can use to tease out a story. Our time may be brief but our ambitions will be high. Participants will be required to arrive with a monologue already stuffed securely in their memories.
