We offer workshops and post show discussions alongside all our performance work, together with a free Education Pack.

Practical workshops on the Theatre of Bertolt Brecht

Originally offered to schools in Spelthorne, and funded by Spelthorne Borough Council, in association with performances of both Portraits in Song and The Uninvited, these workshops continue to accompany both productions.

Souvenir d'Anne Frank Education Pack

Souvenir d'Anne Frank Education Pack cover

The Education Pack is intended as a resource, and was purposefully designed to accompany Souvenir d'Anne Frank; aiming to provide insight into the creative development of the production, the rehearsal process and theatrical techniques employed. Includes key notes on the historical, social and cultural background of the piece.

The Education Pack is available in PDF format (6.5mb).

Painting Lifelines

Developed by Richard Aylwin

In Painting Lifelines participants lead with their own responses to the chosen source material, through the creation of a poetic, collective, visual score: A map of shared experience. The marks and pathways that we paint together on a giant canvas will evoke new arrangements of ideas, compositions of words, images and soundscapes, in an intuitive creative process that everyone can enjoy.

These whole day, collaborative workshops were part of the outreach programme offered alongside Souvenir d'Anne Frank.
