Acting in Restoration Comedy: The 60 Minute BBC Master Class with Simon Callow

by Simon Callow

“Taking scenes from The Relapse by John Vanbrugh as the text, Callow directs a workshop of young actors and subjects them to his own rigorous and scrupulous appraisal.” –Radio Times



The art of acting in Restoration Comedy, the buoyant, often bawdy romps which celebrated the re-opening of the English theatres after Cromwell's dour reign, is the subject of Simon Callow's bold investigation. There is cause again to celebrate as Callow, one of Britain's foremost actors and directors, aims to restore the form to all its original voluptuous vigor. Callow shows the way to attain the clarity and hilarity in some of the most delightful roles ever conceived for the theatre.
