Theatre Workout is developing two workshops for The Kite Runner, targeted at secondary and further education groups, teaching performance techniques while exploring the educational themes within the production.
Age recommendation: 14+
A general drama workshop focused on the key themes of friendship, betrayal and guilt, explored through drama games and improvisation exercises.
This workshop is suitable for all groups, but is of particular benefit to younger and less experienced students.
Aimed at GCSE, A-Level and degree students, this workshop teaches character development, voice and other acting techniques, before working on key scene and improvisation exercises set around the plot and central characters of the play, exploring ivotal moments around Amir’s life and relationships with Hassan, Baba and Assef.
More mature groups may also choose to explore complex issues around sexuality, right and wrong, and other themes central to the plot in an extended three hour masterclass.
The Kite Runner:
“THERE IS A WAY TO BE GOOD AGAIN”
Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international best-selling novel, this powerful story has now been adapted into a stunning new stage production. A haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, it follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.
Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and two childhood friends are about to be torn apart. It’s a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament. But neither Hassan or Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever.
Having mesmerised audiences across the country, this production comes to the Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season from 21st December.
