Rehearsal is where all our ideas about a play, our emotions, our experience and our meanings, come together.

In this section we want to give a flavour of how we rehearse, and how our rehearsals shape the way the production is formed. There are three different areas that are important to the way we rehearse: through improvisation workshops, through developing and utilising actors’ strengths, and through making the material accessible to participants and audience.
