Adapting Prose For Performance: A workshop
The Signalman by Charles Dickens
Hothouse Theatre

10th Dec

Ever thought about adapting a piece of classic prose for performance?

Well here is a chance to have a look at one particular way of doing it with a workshop looking at Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story, The Signalman.

We will be looking at part of the text and exploring ways of turning it into a script for performance them having a go at performing it.

There will also be an opportunity to take it further and join the cast to record it, via zoom, in time for it to go live on Twelfth Night as part of Hothouse Theatre’s Dickens Season.

by Guy Jones
