This is a creative practice as research course integrating theoretical and practical study. Students take part in a performance or other theatre event as playwright, director, actor or designer, and produce a short dissertation which builds on the knowledge and understanding gained during the practical work on the production. Students will be able to extend their knowledge and skills in the areas of theatre production, dramaturgical research, and academic writing. There is also room within the course of study for students to further develop their academic skills in writing, contemporary theoretical approaches, research methodology and/or the study of theatre history.
