Tomorrow we continue our programme of “Page To Stage” workshops with a session looking at the work of Bertolt Brecht. The workshop will take place at the Library Theatre and will offer the chance to look at Brecht’s text from the perspective of a theatre director and think about how you may begin to put it on its feet for performance. For those of you who can’t make it to the workshop here are some great quotes from Brecht’s plays:
- Society cannot share a common communication system as long as it is split into warring factions.
- Don’t be afraid of death so much as inadequate life.
- No one will improve your lot if you do not yourself.
- War is like love, it always finds a way.
- Mixing one’s wines may be a mistake, but old and new wisdom mix admirably.
- Whenever there are great virtues, it’s a sure sign that things are wrong.
The next “Page to Stage” workshop takes place in March and will be based around the work of Brian Friel. For more information or to book tickets please ring the theatre box office on 0161 236 7110.
