Model Theatre

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Shakespeare gives Hamlet a monologue in which he advises the strolling players, in their forthcoming drama, to ‘hold the mirror up to nature’.  And that, in the simplest and most direct of ways  is exactly what Model Theatre  sets out to do.  The drama remains an engagement or interaction between the ‘theatricals’ and the audience  -  but in this theatrical form both groups become equally active as performers.
