Workshop 1- Interpreting scripts & Development of Character
Interpreting scripts & Development of Character (Maximum 25) presented by Trent Barker.
Using Anton Chekhov's play The Cherry Orchard we will explore character interpretation and how to look for clues in the script which help with discovering character. We will also break down a short scene from the play with text analysis to help us interpret the script.
