Investigation Three

Investigation Three was led by Ola Animashawun, Associate Director at the Royal Court Theatre, Creative Director of Euphoric Ink and founder of the Royal Court Theatre’s young writers programme.

Ola explored the idea of Open Heart Theatre with second year students, a new way of engaging with plays which encourages the writer to make sure the audience is engaged at all times.

Students thought about how title choice impacts on an audience’s engagement as well as exploring when their plays became boring/disengaged the audience and strategies for stopping this occurring.
