During this course, participants will explore ground-breaking plays written during the most influential time in black British play history and will have the opportunity to read plays that vary in themes, characters, language and accents. Through the use of recorded video and audio footage, participants will gain an insight into the history of black British theatre including the birth of black theatre companies and the many celebrated Caribbean and African actors and practitioners, who helped to lay the foundation for black British contemporary writers, performers and directors. In the last day of the course participants will perform a showing of extracts.
