Workshop 2 – 24th January

Masterclass: Innogen – Tobias Deacon

Why is the play called Cymbeline? Surely if there’s a character in it worthy of titular status it’s Innogen? Why aren’t actors clamouring to play Innogen? This masterclass will be looking at Innogen as a character. By exploring her scenes in detail we will unlock some of the secrets of our lead and how her story forms the backbone of the play.


“Hath Britain all the sun that shines? Day? Night?
Are they not but in Britain? I’ th’ world’s volume
Our Britain seems as of it, but not in’t,
In a great pool a swan’s nest.”
