Come and join in the fun during  Old Wine in new skins: comedy and its historic and contemporary roots”, which will be run by director, actor, performer and teacher extraordinaire, Mitch Mitchelson. Laughter will be the name of the day. This comic workshop, thoughtful in content, will see Mitch guide us through:
·         the way Greek and Roman comedy found itself a home in Commedia.
·         Comedic routines found in Buster Keaton and “Only Fools and Horses”,
·         How a gag can appear in a Theatre de Complicite routine, a commedia lazzi and in 'A Midsummer's Night Dream ' at the Globe
·         how a 16th century commedia entrance can also appear in an episode of 'Friends' and
·         how the Python ministry of funny walks can have resonance with Peter Handke and his provocative theatre.
