The work of this compulsory BA Acting module is to integrate student skills and techniques learned in first and second year into the first production that they will perform in their final professional preparation year.

The choice of plays will normally be guided by what is deemed suitable for the specific needs of the year cohort as a whole, thus helping to develop areas of work and professional growth which need to be addressed and consolidated specifically within the company of actors. The plays will be chosen from established quality texts that are likely to be story and character-driven; for example, students could be cast in a Christmas show (using an established quality text not a pantomime script) or in a touring production for schools of a Shakespeare text.

Alongside performances students will develop a series of related practical schools workshops.

Plays and workshops are directed either by East 15 staff or visiting directors.
