The English College in Prague Theatre Department/Arts Faculty presents a selection of performances from our recent examinations with the London Academy of Musical and Dramatic Arts:
The Dreamplay is one of the later, more symbolist works of August Strindberg. To sum up, it tells the tale of a daughter of Heaven’s descent to Earth to learn about the suffering of humankind. In this piece Ruti Etlin performs the role of the long suffering lawyer who goes on to marry the daughter of heaven and share her adventures.
In Saint Joan, G.B. Shaw explores the history of the legendary mystical saint of France. Operating on several levels, Anise’s powerfully delivered text guides us to compare and contrast Joan of Arc’s confinement with our own.
Streetcar Named Desire is the most well-known Deep South drama from Tennessee Williams. Estella Marlowe, one of our art scholars, impresses with this understated delivery highlighting Blanche’s inability to deal with her own denial.
