Fourth Wall

Thu 01 Sep 2022 - Thu 13 Oct 2022

Our Fourth Wall project invites adults with learning disabilities to explore a play. Together we learn about the characters and storyline of the play, go to watch the production together and create our own version.

In theatre the ‘fourth wall’ is the invisible barrier between the stage and the audience. Every season at The Watermill, we ‘break the fourth wall’ of a Watermill production. We choose a production that is well-known and challenging. Previously we have explored for example, Romeo + Juliet, Frankenstein and The Importance of Being Earnest.

Fourth Wall: Othello

Othello is a play written by Shakespeare. It is a story about love, jealousy and lies. The Watermill Ensemble will perform this version and will be playing live music.

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 the group facilitator, and have a short tour of the space and facilities with us. If you would like to book a visit, please contact us.

If you have any questions or ideas, please email projects@watermill.org.uk


Please note that we will be working as a group and are not able to guarantee one-to-one support for participants. If this would be important to you, you are welcome to bring someone to support you; just let us know.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
