On Friday I mentioned next month’s TakeOver Festival at York Theatre Royal in which a group of under 26 year olds do just that — take over the theatre for three weeks.
Here’s another example of a similar learning experience in London.
From May 31 to June 3 — which means it could be something to do over the part of the long Jubilee weekend if you’re looking for shows to see — students of Central School of Speech & Drama and their mentors are to mount the Accidental Festival at the Round House. This is the Festival’s 7th year.
The Accidental Festival, which is commendably international, is devised by the 21 students on Central’s BA Theatre Practice: Performance Arts course acting as producers.
