Study drama in the cultural heart of London, one of the world’s greatest performance cities. Drama at Queen Mary allows you to study performance from a variety of cultural perspectives and historical periods, and in a range of contexts – from musicals and Shakespeare to activism, interventions and live art. Theatre trips, practical performance and technical inductions are an essential part of the programme, which investigates the ways in which drama and performance can be used in different settings – art galleries, schools, prisons, museums, theatres and in the street. It’s taught as an active and dynamic subject, placing equal importance on individual development and collaborative work with other students. Through an exploration of the art of performance, you'll be encouraged to follow your own creative interests and expertise. Our staff – world-class academics and artists – will work with you to make learning challenging and exciting, and help you to develop as an informed theatre and performance maker.
