EVENT: Socialist Theatre Course

To be held at the Working Class Movement Library, 51 The Crescent, Salford M5 4WX, starting on Tuesday 4 October for ten weeks, 7pm - 9pm

Socialist writers have had a huge influence on modern Drama and theatre. Find out some of the reasons why by attending this lively course. It not only explores some of the essential ingredients of good, lively political theatre, it asks you to have a go at it yourself! At the end of the course, students will put their heads together to see if they can construct a piece of Socialist Theatre relevant to today’s situation using some of the techniques they have learnt during the course. Ideal for writers, activists, or those just interested in learning about Socialist Theatre. 

The course, being run by the WEA, looks at (amongst others) Brecht, Augusto Boal, 7:84, Unity Theatre, Dario Fo, Agitprop and other important aspects of the Socialist Theatre tradition.

Graded “Outstanding” by a recent WEA Learning Inspection.
