Year 9

Year 9: A day in the life of a Victorian actor: e.g. Henry Irving or Edmund Kean, or Ellen Terry.

Your presentation should deal with:

  • Living conditions
  • Acting style
  • Social class and lifestyle
  • What happened in rehearsal
  • Costume

You could write this as a diary entry (maybe with illustrations!) or a wall display, or make a film!
