Heads Will Roll - Taught by an Idiot
Alongside our tour of Heads Will Roll we ran a programme of engagement activities and opportunities for young people, including five workshops delivered specifically to young people in rural areas. Our Assistant Director Almudena Calvo delivered workshops for five groups of young people in Dorset:
Bridport Youth Theatre
Almudena worked with the students on the techniques and exercises that Told by an Idiot used in the creation of Heads Will Roll and, joined by members of the cast, spoke to the students about working in a professional theatre company.
This work was generously funded by the Foyle Foundation.
We also created a Resource Pack for schools, teachers and youth groups with games, exercises, activities, information on the show and historical context, designed to enable young people and students to explore the production creatively and in greater depth.
