    THEATRE STUDIES: From Page to Stage

    This group combines the study and discussion of plays with theatre visits.  The focus is mainly on modern and contemporary plays, the selection depending on what is on in London.  Earlier drama is included if the group is keen.  Members introduce the play, taking an area of interest to them (e.g. context, themes, character interpretation, staging).  The emphasis at meetings is on discussion and exchanging views.
