Twelfth Night: Workshop

Synopsis
This workshop, based on Act II iii, shows how a group of experienced actors, with relatively little input from a director, set about developing a strategy to preserve the comic tone of the scene, while not losing sight of the serious and sometimes violent themes of the play. Directed by Tony Church, the actors are Patrick Stewart, Richard Johnson, Eric Allen, Lisa Harrow and Bernard Lloyd.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
