Bill Dodds is running a series of Director’s Workshops in the Green Room on Club nights from 7pm. The workshops are suitable for all levels of experience. The example used will be a One act play by John Mortimer –‘The Dock Brief’ which will be performed for a Patrons Evening to be held at the end of the season.

This 2 hander, by the creator of Horace Rumpole is already cast ( Stan Dix and John Thornton have the roles) and the purpose of the workshops will be to give ANYONE interested ( beginners or not) an opportunity to give their views on how the play can be best presented to an audience. Concentrating on stage movement , line delivery, positioning, and ”business” – in other words all aspects of presenting a play which will move the production from “ordinary” to “extraordinary”  and to give every member the opportunity to make suggestions and to discuss why certain  aspects of basic stage craft need to be followed . Scripts will be available to distribute to those attending from Tuesday 8th December.
