OUR PRESENTATION FORMAT

A Red Well Theater Group presentation includes a brief introduction of the selected play’s thematic relevance to the group therapy enterprise.  The therapist-as-actors work in a ‘theater-in-the-round’ arrangement, whereby they are seated in a circle, surrounded on all sides by concentric circles of audience. With no props or stage movement, the presentation is akin to a ‘radio play’, with the actors interactively, vocally portraying their characters for full dramatic effect.  At the conclusion of the reading, audience members pair up with a neighbor for an immediate exchange of their reactions to the play. This is followed by a clinically informed, discussant commentary. We conclude the presentation with a moderated audience discussion.
