Tragedy HSC Workshop

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 19 March - 20 March 2009

This HSC Tragedy Workshop, created by the Sydney Theatre Company and directed by Naomi Edwards, will feature Oedipus Tyrannus and Death of a Salesman.

Beginning with an explanation of the social and cultural contexts of both plays, the workshop will then move into an examination of the dramatic elements of the classical tragedy Oedipus Tyrannus, compared to the modern tragedy Death of a Salesman.

Finally a consideration of ideas around contemporary staging will be presented and demonstrated by the performers. Students will be encouraged to consider what impact the plays now have on a modern audience.

Naomi Edwards will guide four performers through key scenes from Oedipus Tyrannusand Death of a Salesman, offering students an opportunity to see professional actors tackle scenes from both tragedies.

Students will be encouraged to ask questions during the session.

*Places are limited to 50 students so please book early.
