Lorca and Censorship - Workshop materials


¡Silencio, silencio he dicho!

Download materials for a drama-based workshop for students studying A Level Spanish, focusing on La casa de Bernarda Alba and theatre censorship in Spain during the Franco dictatorship. These materials were created by Dr Michael Thompson (Durham University) as part of the Theatre Censorship in Spain project. You are welcome to download the files to be used for educational purposes.

What teachers have said about the workshop:

"The workshop was very rewarding for students and teachers alike, and I went away inspired, planning to bring more drama into the classroom and to use role-play involving myself, the teacher, as well as the students."

"We all thought that it was absolutely brilliant. It was so exciting to have an immersive workshop that worked so effectively and that gave the pupils a sense of immediacy as they discovered a period of time and a text from the last century."
