    London is one of Europe's most exciting theatrical cities with a range of productions on offer at any given time.
    This module will examine a range of live productions to explore strategies for reading live performance that
    recognize the importance of where performances take place. As a group we will visit the National Theatre,
    the Barbican, and the Royal Court as well as 'fringe' or alternative venues in examining how we read the
    performance event. Students will be expected to engage with critical reviews of performances, examine the
    role of press and marketing and explore the targeting of specific productions to particular audience groups.
