The Irish Theatre Summer Program at the Gaiety School of Acting is designed for acting students from outside Ireland. In this course you will take part in a number of practical acting workshops and seminars carefully designed to place the writers in both a theatrical, literary and cultural context. In the four weeks you will develop an understanding of the historical and literary background of selected texts from each writer, in addition to studying the staging and dramaturgical aspects. Students will be cast in scenes that feature on the curriculum and on the final day the participants will perform a showcase of selected scenes from the various plays studied.
