Welcome to the Department of Drama, Theatre and Performance

A warm welcome from all of us at your new academic home in the Department of Drama, Theatre, and Performance. This is an exciting time to be coming to Roehampton, with cutting-edge programmes, a wonderful new library and an excellent team of academic staff ready to meet you.

Our staff have international reputations as performance makers, writers, curators, historians, theorists and experts in a wide range of drama, theatre and performance. As a student you will work closely with staff on courses that combine the best of practice-led and theoretical approaches to the subject. In our Department you can develop the knowledge, confidence, and skills to prepare you for a wide range of work and life opportunities.

To complement your studies, the Department hosts a stimulating range of events, theatre visits, and seminars, and supports and encourages the Student Society of Arts and Performance (SSOAP) as well as our all-campus society, the Roehampton Players. Each Summer we also organise a two-week festival of student performances called the ROPE Festival, which showcases the creative talents of our undergraduates.

We hope you enjoy your time at Roehampton and your chance to delve into the vibrant artistic cultures of London.

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon.

Best wishes,

Professor Graham White
Head of Department, Drama, Theatre and Performance
