What is Play Reading?

We will analyze the selected play texts by talking about what was considered in the formation of theater works from the past to the present, the currents, periods and the processes of the playwrights. What is dramatic, epic, absurd? How is it handled in theatre plays? You are invited to our workshop where we aim to take a closer look at the theater works by examining the establishment of character creation, plot and dialogue structures.
