University of York theatre students get professional help
More than 50 University of York students are breaking new ground by working with professional theatre-makers.

It is the first time that Theatre Café, a celebration of newly-translated plays by European playwrights produced by London-based Company of Angels, has been held outside the capital.

The second-year undergraduates studying theatre: writing, directing and performance in the university’s department of theatre, film and television will take part in a series of readings, performances and talks at York Theatre Royal from today until Saturday.

Company of Angels and York Theatre Royal are collaborating in the project in which the university is a partner.

The students will work as actors, directors, designers, stage-managers and dramaturgs for a fortnight as they rehearse and develop these new plays.

Professionals will mentor them in every area of theatre-making and their work will be performed to an audience of both industry professionals and the public.
