Propeller Theatre Company have today announced plans for a unique two-day symposium in collaboration with Wimbledon College of Arts, exploring the text of Edward III through theatre practice and debate. The event will bring these two internationally-renowned organisations together for the first time through their common pursuit of interrogating Shakespeare in performance, and their commitment to the integration of professional practice, research and education.

This one-off research and development event will involve ten Propeller actors, artistic director Edward Hall, designer Michael Pavelka, lighting designer Ben Omerod and text editor Roger Warren who will, along with leading scholars and invited delegates, investigate the text through rehearsal and discussion. Additional speakers will include Professor Carol Rutter, Professor Jean Howard (Columbia University, NY), Peter Kirwan (Nottingham University), Lucy Cullingford (University of Warwick), David Lindley (Leeds University) and Paul Allen (presenter of “Night Waves”).

Following the symposium, Propeller will be offering workshops, masterclasses and rehearsed readings of the text to schools, colleges and universities.
