Theatre Workshop

At the beginning of November 2017, the 3rd forms of Sprachengymnasium, including our class 3C, had the opportunity to attend a theatre workshop with the actor and director David Taylor.

In class, we had read the two plays written by David Taylor, which we were going to perform. Both plays were parodies of Shakespeare´s popular plays “A Midsummer Night´s Dream” and “Macbeth”.

At the beginning of the workshop, David Taylor told us some interesting facts about himself. As a son of British parents, he grew up in Jamaica and worked for many years as a professional actor. He has been part of Vienna´s English Theatre for twenty-five years and he has even written plays for the theatre group.

After this short introduction, we started performing the plays and we really enjoyed ourselves. David was impressed by our enthusiasm. It was an amazing experience for all of us.
