The Paper Stage

The Paper Stage

‘The Paper Stage’ is a new public play-reading group in Canterbury dedicated to the extraordinary and diverse drama of the Renaissance. A number of exceptionally talented playwrights flourished in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, and yet today the period is dominated by prominent figure of Shakespeare. This series, which consists of monthly events focused on different plays, offers students and the public the chance to experience this golden age of theatre through lively and experimental group readings that place you at the heart of the plays. ‘The Paper Stage’ initiative has been founded and run by Dr Harry Newman and Dr Clare Wright.
