Students on London Theatre Mayterm partake of a huge array of theatrical experiences in a variety of thrilling locales. In London, we will meander from the high-brow elegance of the West End to the rough-and-tumble immediacy of Shakespeare's Globe to the expansive variety of the National Theatre. We'll travel to Stratford-on-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace, to see the Royal Shakespeare Company perform on their state-of-the-art thrust stage, and perhaps we'll even get a chance to hobnob with some of the actors after a show. In Dublin, we'll visit the historic Abbey Theatre and view modern classics at the Gate as well as sampling experimental work on smaller stages. Through it all, we'll be seeing world premiers by established playwrights, exploring innovative work by cutting-edge threatre companies, and reveling in the finest productions of Shakespeare anywhere in the world.

What else might you choose to do? Snag a seat in the choir for Evensong at Westminster Abbey? Ramble through Egyptian mummies and Elgin marbles at the British Museum (for free)? Go rowing on the Serpentine, or gaze at the Crown Jewels at the Tower? Beguiling possibilities abound.

We'll read the plays, discuss the productions, write review of the performances, take backstage tours of the theatres, talk with the actors and directors, try our hand at a scene, maybe participate in a theatre workshop. And night after night we'll witness some of the finest theatre in the world. Won't you join us?
