Create a Play in a Day!

The first of these is a Shakespeare workshop at Torre Abbey, to celebrate a fantastic professional touring production visiting the abbey the same week from the Exeter Northcott Theatre Graduate Company.


Tues 1 August
Comedy of Errors (workshop) @ Torre Abbey
Age range: 11-20

Bring Shakespeare to life with a new energetic take on this comedy, to celebrate an amazing touring production of the same play coming to the Abbey from 1-4 August from the Exeter Northcott.

In this young people's workshop on Tues 1 August, you will create your own version of this fantastically funny slapstick play with support from Doorstep Lead Artist Polly Ferguson.
