Poets and playwrights of successive eras use text to capture the movement of emotion through thought. Five days, five eras of drama:

  • Tragedy in Translation:  Ancient Greek Literature
  • The Bard and Before:  Plays that May Have Influenced The Young Shakespeare
  • Mrs. Slocombe's Pussy:  Sex, Race and Innuendo in British TV Sitcoms
  • Merciless Words:  Bitterness and Humor of Oscar Wilde
  • "What Happens Next…":  "Classical Writing" for the Modern Stage and Screen

Each day, study the language of a new era of drama, and rehearse texts with professional directors. In addition to rehearsal, the day begins with skills workshop. This new course is unique to RADA and TLab.

To maximize your personal and professional development, the course is limited to eight participants.

This is an educational opportunity like no other.  Our exclusive partnerships with institutions like RADA give you the chance to study in true university courses with top professors from these hallowed institutions of higher learning.

If you are a teacher of English language, literature, drama, or history, these courses will elevate you as an educator.  Professional development credit is available for all courses, and scholarships are available for many courses.

If you are a curious lifelong learner or world explorer, you will find inspiration and new perspectives as you study with esteemed professors at the UK's most prestigious campuses, alongside students from around the world.

This one-week course will immerse you in English-language studies in the place where they were born.  As you study, you will explore the history and soak up the culture for a truly complete learning experience.
