My experience of the Pre-1900 Production Project

My name is Stevie and I am a Third year Theatre student at the University of York. It is an absolute joy to write about this University and my course, in addition to what I believe makes it so unique in comparison to other institutions. In my blog I am going to be discussing a recent module I completed in the first term of Third year and the experiences I personally had with it. ‘Pre-1900s’ is a core module of your Third year within the Theatre degree, and is an incredibly exciting challenge to undertake working with your peers to create some truly impressive theatre. A key part of University, for me, is falling in love with your degree and reminding yourself why you chose to pursue the subject you did. With the Pre-1900s module it was absolutely a perfect reminder of why I particularly love Theatre and immersing myself in it on a daily basis.
