Megan Griffith – Scene Study Relationship Dynamics, Class and Comedic Potential in Yasmina Reza’s The God of Carnage
In this 2.5 hour scene study session led by director Megan Marie Griffith actors will analyse, rehearse, perform, be directed and receive feedback, bringing 6 pages of text to life.
Using a variety of methods, from “table” script analysis and “on your feet” script work to games and improvisation, the session will focus on bringing characters to life, creating complex relationship dynamics and finding the fun in Yasmina Reza’s sharp comedy about parenting, marriage, class, culture.
