Marlowe Society AGM: Saturday 24th February 2007


  • 10:45 - Gather for coffee at the bar and for the sale of raffle tickets.
  • 11:15 - AGM commences.
  • 13:00 - Buffet lunch.
  • A selection of dishes, including vegetarian.
  • 14:15 - Marlowe's "Massacre at Paris" - A Workshop with Mark Woolgar
  • Mark Woolgar, Head of Acting at Richmond Adult Community College, will lead a workshop and discussion on his forthcoming production of Marlowe's Massacre at Paris with his students' assistance.
  • Mark was formerly Head of the Dance and Drama Awards scheme and at Trinity College, London. He achieved fame during his time as Artistic Director of the Derby Playhouse, and has directed many outdoor Shakespeare productions. Mark was a prominent member of OUDS during his time at Oxford, and that was his springboard for moving into theatre production. This production of the Massacre at Paris will be presented by his students in the near future, and members of the Marlowe Society may be able to attend (though performances are likely to be at lunchtimes!). It is just possible that Mark might bring it to Canterbury for our Marlowe Day.
  • 15:30 - Raffle to be drawn.
  • 16:00 - Proceedings close.
