RSC Education in partnership with Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning will be leading a Sixth Form Conference on Richard II. This conference is specially created to complement AS and A level English and Drama curricula.

Students will leave the day with a greater understanding of: the play in performance; the creative process of actors and the director; the range of interpretive choices that need to be made to bring the play to the stage; and an analysis of key scenes. Preparation materials will be available before the conference. 

Workshops will include:

  • A panel discussion with the RSC artistic teams about their inspiration for the production
  • Practical drama sessions with the artistic team 
  • Textual study of key scenes  Scene studies: practical demonstrations of the interpretive choices open to actors 
  • Voice session with members of the RSC Voice Department
