TRIAL: Drama Online

University of Liverpool staff and students have trial access to ‘Drama Online’, until 19th January 2017.  Take a look at this resource, and let us know what you think.

Access: Drama Online
(Login required off campus)

The award-winning Drama Online introduces new writers alongside the most iconic names in playwriting history, providing contextual and critical background through scholarly works and practical guides.

The constantly growing collection meets the full range of teaching needs for theatre studies, literature courses and drama schools. From the epic to the monologue; ensemble to one-person plays; comedy to tragedy; the historical to the contemporary; and from the highly political to the profoundly personal, there is plenty to discover.

New collections feature over 80 hours of video including over twenty theatre productions from the world renowned Shakespeare's Globe theatre; four key set drama and literature texts from educational media company Stage on Screen; the Manchester Royal Exchange’s sell-out hit of Hamlet starring BAFTA nominated Maxine Peake; and a Shakespeare masterclass from top international acting coach Patsy Rodenburg.

After trying Drama Online please leave your comments below. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments. Do get in touch, we really want to know what you think about this resource.

This is an excellent resource, and would be particularly useful for students on the Shakespeare modules I am involved in teaching. ENGL368: Shakespeare: Page, Stage, Screen, which requires students to buy high quality editions such as those in the Arden series (available through this resource) and to watch and discuss film and stage versions of the plays, would be particularly well served by the resource. I am sure that drama modules across the degree would benefit greatly from permanent access.

I'm currently in the third year of my English degree and have found this resource particularly useful on the British Writing module for the Drama we have covered.
It would have been so useful on the 2nd Year Friars, Whore and Rovers Renaissance Drama module.
Please keep the Drama Online resource/extend the trial !!!

This is an incredibly useful resource. I'm currently in the final year of my degree and it has helped hugely with the British Writing module. It would have be really useful for all of my previous modules and it's a shame we haven't had access to it before.
Please keep Drama Online, almost every English module includes some form of drama, everyone will be able to get a lot of use out of it.
