Acting & Directing

Professional acting classes covering voice, movement and acting technique.

Collaborative Classes

Workshops and exercises as a company including improvisation, devising and creating your own work.

By the end of the term you will be presenting the work you've created in class as part of an in-house showcase which will include an industry panel who can provide feedback.

Over the term you will be given the chance to work with some of the industry's leading professionals in a workshop environment. 

Our focus on contemporary new writing will help upcoming playwrights and directors hone these new skills and learn how to work with actors. Our actors will be given actor training and provided with connections to upcoming playwrights & directors. All of this happens within a safe, supportive rehearsal space. Our mission is to create diverse, exciting new work that can go on to be part of scratch nights, fringe festivals and go on to become full length plays.
