503Studio Masterclass: Location location

Looking at the possibilities of theatrical location and setting – how to choose the right space, setting and location for your play. An intensive masterclass exploring how what world you set your play is not just about place, design and props, but a magical way of bringing audience more deeply into drama and of illuminating character and context. An inspiring and liberating session that’s the perfect antidote to lockdown!
