Co-Created ensemble written “Break From Life”

I played the Doctor

The second “style block” of training in the first year was a five-week course in Melodrama. We explored how to devise through playwriting a 10-minute story that ended with a triumph of virtue. Working with characters that could potentially contain an emotional depth. The final performances were student-devised melodramas.
