Fourth Wall

Thu 02 Apr 2020 - Thu 21 May 2020

Every season at The Watermill, we ‘break the fourth wall’ of a Watermill production.

In theatre the ‘fourth wall’ is the invisible barrier between the stage and the audience.

Our Fourth Wall project invites adults with learning disabilities to break through this barrier to explore a play. Together we learn about the characters and storyline of the play, going to watch the production together and creating our own version along the way.

We choose a production that is well-known and challenging. Previously we have explored Romeo + Juliet, Frankenstein, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Jane Eyre and The Importance of Being Earnest, including performing on The Watermill stage.


How much will it cost?

Thanks to generous funding from Greenham Trust we are not charging for this course but we are inviting a suggested donation of £36. Your ticket to see the professional production is covered within this donation.


Familiarisation Visits

For many of us, trying something new, with new people, in a new place, can be daunting. Our familiarisation visits are a chance to meet Louise, Community Associate at the The Watermill and have a short tour of the theatre and facilities with her. If you would like to book a visit, please contact Louise (details below).
