Transcripts: Practitioners in Practice

"Today on Digital Theatre Plus we release three more transcripts sourced from our Making Theatre library that enable: independent learning, skills development and the understanding of key themes pertinent to the teaching of English and Drama.
"Releasing and realising the physical and visual potential of the text is the designer’s challenge. In simple terms, they create the world of the play, but it’s so much more than that. This week, three wonderful theatre designers illuminate their craft and demonstrate the alchemy in their work as they move between being architects, artists, illusionists and interior design specialists."
