Drama and Theatre Studies at William De Ferrers School

Course description

The course has a balance of the practical and the theoretical, each informing the development of the students' understanding of Drama as a whole. The practical focus of the course looks at exploring set plays, the work of contemporary and historical theatre practioners, performing a chosen play and performing a solo monologue. Students also sit written exams and produce coursework, both are based on set plays and practioners. Students consider Drama from the perspective of the actor, director and set designer with the focus on the audience experience.
