Theatre text in context: Compare and contrast 1564-1720
This externally examined written unit requires the detailed study of one prescribed play and one prescribed historical period of theatrical development.
The unit is divided into three sections. For this scheme of work we are going to look specifically at Section C, which requires students to study and research the original performance conditions of a play written and performed in one of three given periods of theatrical development. A live production of the chosen play, at which students respond as a member of the audience, will be at the centre of this section.
