|Mark teaches a session for Modern Drama: Scottish Theatre.|
Mark is incredibly knowledgeable about the world of Scottish theatre, and has shed so much light on how to look at a piece of theatre subjectively. During our first session with him, he taught us how to approach writing a review.
He presented three questions to address when reviewing a production:
What was it trying to do? Did it accomplish that? Was it worth doing in the first place?
Today Mark talked us through a timeline of theatre in Scotland. It was fascinating to listen to him shed light on the origin of the texts we are currently studying in addition to giving us the history of a number of theatre companies that have been mentioned, some many times, on our three week journey. We are very much looking forward to having one more class with the kind and brilliant Mark Fisher next Monday!
