ReCreating: In Play

CAPITAL's Playwright in Residence Tarell McCraney will lead a week-long intensive project, 15-19 February, using Shakespeare's King John, its themes, language, and structure to generate new work. Warwick students and staff are invited to work as an ensemble to devise ideas that spring  from an exploration of the play which Tarell is adapting for the RSC. The aim is to try out these ideas then and there, putting them up on their feet, teasing them out  and using them as building blocks towards an original piece.
