From 5 to 2: The Director’s Dilemma

From 5 to 2 Webinar graphic PICT Classic TheatreThe First in our 2022 Webinar Series!

When all of the plays of Shakespeare – and those of many of contemporaries – are written in a five-act formula with no clear indication of any other division or intermission, it becomes incumbent on the director to decide if and when such a break in the action is both appropriate and necessary.

And frequently, such a break in the action is not where you might expect.

In the first webinar of our 2022 Series, we will discuss the various options offered by the play texts. Options which will both enhance the action and tension of the play, while offering the audience the often much needed break.

PICT Educates webinars are free and appropriate for Classic Theatre enthusiasts of any age.
