In a typical play, there is one playwright, one director and many actors. Devised theatre takes a different, more collaborative approach. In this unit, students work alongside the teacher/director to create an entirely original theatrical production based on the personal interests, passions or questions. Students are held individually accountable for their contribution while also working as a team to create a meaningful, transformative work that slowly takes shape over nine weeks and culminates in a performance for a live audience.
