Content

The Classical and Contemporary Text programme from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is an intensive year-long course. It is for actors and directors with some experience who want to take their skills to the next level and who want to become more reflective, aspirational practitioners.

There are two strands to the Classical and Contemporary Text Masters – acting or directing – with students working together as an ensemble throughout the year. You will focus on two strands of theatre: classical (Shakespeare and Renaissance) and contemporary (new writing). There will be numerous opportunities to learn, experiment, and collaborate in projects, performances, and rehearsals.

As part of your studies, you will complete a one-month residency at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, developing your knowledge and skills of working with classical text.

You will spend time working on new plays with some of Scotland’s most talented writers in our collaboration with Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland. These new plays are performed in Glasgow to a public and professional audience.

You’ll end your studies with industry showcases in Glasgow and London. Through this programme, you will benefit from professional connections allowing you to develop invaluable industry contacts. When you graduate, you will have gained practical, high-level experience of working in the profession, as well as all-important contacts and the skills to underpin your future career, including business, entrepreneurship and industry etiquette.
