Tutor: Tanya DeanTanya Dean - Gormanston Drama Summer School - Actors and Directors

Following in the wake of the seismic #WakingTheFeminists campaign, this course celebrates the diversity of female voices writing for the stage.

Through a combination of discussion and practical exercises, students will explore a diverse portfolio of plays from both Irish and international women playwrights. Each class will begin with a brief discussion on the play and playwright in order to put the work into context, before students physically explore the texts through practical work, staging scenes, and working with extracts.

This course is designed to expand students’ personal library of female playwrights as well as their own skills as performers.
