Top RSC director shares tips with theatre studies students

ACCLAIMED theatre director Max Stafford-Clark made time in his busy schedule to share his experience with students at Stonyhurst College.
Pupils taking AS and A2 theatre studies received coaching during an afternoon workshop at the college. It followed a visit to the Library Theatre, Manchester, to see the director’s touring production of “The Convict’s Opera”.

Max Stafford-Clark’s artistic direction of the Traverse and Royal Court theatres, and of the Joint Stock and Out of Joint theatre companies, has earned him a place in modern British theatre, particularly in the area of new writing. He has also directed plays for the Royal Shakespeare Company and at the National Theatre and been called “the most distinguished director of new work that the British theatre still has”.

Pupils enjoyed the workshop, in the college’s own theatre, the Academy Room, where they learned a wide range of performance techniques.
