Led by a professional actor, the workshop will explore acting technique and the themes of Goodnight Mister Tom (e.g. friendship, family, town and country, growing up). Participants will investigate the world created in Goodnight Mister Tom and some of its characters. Starting with a full actors’ warm up, the workshop will help the participants to delve deeper into the script and gain an insight into the production from the actors’ point of view.
Directing Theatre workshop
A professional Director will work with the group looking at how a piece of theatre is born from the pages of a script. Participants are given the experience of being directed, directing others and looking at different approaches directors might and can make to an extract of the script of Goodnight Mister Tom.
Working with a professional playwright, the participants will investigate the adaptation of a novel to its scripted form. This text-based workshop will explore the skills and techniques of playwriting and how atmosphere is created in the script, through stage directions and the dialogue. The practitioner will use interactive games and character work to approach the text before encouraging the participants to write their own dialogue from an extract from the novel Goodnight Mister Tom.
Immersive Goodnight Mister Tom workshop – in school only
In this exciting workshop, students will be working with a professional Director and Actor to create the world of the play; focusing specifically on the life of evacuees in World War II Britain.
