Come and work a new speech, blow the dust off an old one, and speak your soliloquy from the heart.

A day-long intensive in Shakespeare monologue performance, looking at:

  • Finding direction in the text
  • Accessing the emotional stakes
  • Plotting the journey of the speech
  • Physical grounding
  • As ever, RP accent absolutely not required…

All speeches are worked from the floor up, starting with text analysis, folio comparison, and emotional mapping, moving through to physicalising, stillness and not waving hands about needlessly.

Participants will need:

  • a monologue off by heart
  • loose, comfortable clothing
