The Man with the Luggage: Workshops and Resources



Trestle and Blindeye will be offering an education workshop to accompany their new touring show, The Man with the Luggage. This two-hour workshop will reflect the show’s mix of text, characterisation, and storytelling and concentrate on adapting themes and ideas around home and identity into material for performance.

The workshop will introduce participants to elements of the production such as:

  • ensemble movement
  • multi-role playing
  • devising
  • physicality of character

The play’s themes of home, identity, memory, journeys across borders and love will also be explored by using photographs and verbatim accounts as a catalyst for devising and creating powerful, meaningful and relevant work.

The workshop will educate and stimulate students to see how structure, form and style are fused together through a variety of elements. It will inspire them to be intellectually creative, physically ambitious, and broaden their horizons in respect of subject matter.


The workshop is suitable for all GCSE and A Level Drama students and links directly with the National Curriculum for English at Key Stage 4 and AS level, and with the Edexcel specification for English literature and Contemporary Drama.
