Different moments from a rehearsal of Arthur Miller's 'All My Sons'. The actors Paterson Joseph (Chris), Sunetra Sarker (Annie) and Margot Leicester (Kate) explore the characters and their relationships with each other. The discussions contextualise the motivations of the characters, as the characters slip in and out of role, as if they are being hot-seated.

Classroom Ideas

Could be used in drama, to exemplify how hot-seating can get under the skin of characterisation. Students could use this as a model to explore their own interpretation of character.
