Four of Swords Theatre Workshops

Four of Swords is an Exeter-based theatre, media and education company, with a reputation for creating vivid, magical and immersive storyscapes. We have worked with a range of educational partners such as AQA and Pearson examination boards, Cambridge University Press, Plymouth University and Exeter Phoenix.

We are extremely excited to announce a series of workshops working with the amazing Pelican Project, bringing together Pelican members with undergraduates from Exeter University’s Drama Department. The focus of the workshops will be creating fairy tale shadowplays. The uni students will take the lead in developing the puppets and the stories, whilst the Pelicans will create an eerie and spine-tingling soundtrack. They’ll also have the chance to play with the puppets and explore a bit of shadow work themselves. The project will culminate in a spectacular performance of the plays!
