Actors on tour roll into Priestley

Touring company webTWO actors from the UK Touring Theatre shared some stage secrets with students at Priestley College.

Adam Redmayne and Felicity Rhys ran a workshop with 25 of Priestley’s English Language and Literature students based on Henrik Ibsen’s play ‘A Doll’s House’.

“It was a great opportunity for the students to work with talented actors who have such a good understanding of the text,” said Tutor Clare Marshall.

“It helped the students gain a better understanding of the play in performance as well as work on some of the key themes such as aspects of characterisation, understanding the context.”

UK Touring Theatre is an international touring theatre company, founded in 2012 by Adam and Felicity, who together have over 25 years of experience working in the theatre.

It specialises in producing exciting new English language adaptations of classic European plays; touring to theatres across the UK, Europe and beyond. All their actors have trained at the foremost drama schools in the UK and their high quality productions bring the best of British theatre to venues across the world.

During their time at Priestley, Adam and Felicity ran practical drama activities before the students staged mini-performance based on ‘A Doll’s House’.
