Actor Awareness Workshop
Mon 23 January 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
Happy to finally bring Actor Awareness to my home town and replicate our success in London. For those who don't know, we are a campaign fighting for equality, diversity and working class actors in the arts. We want to replicate our success of London in the heart of the north by having new writing by local talent using local talent. In London we have built incredible 5* scratch nights of new writing, alongside securing Spotlight as our official partner. When we do the new writing nights we invite agents, casting directors and other industry professionals to further your career.
The workshop will be the start of building a community for working class talent, eventually leading onto setting up scratch nights for new writing. We will start with showing a piece from one of our scratch nights from London, to give you an idea of our work. We will teach you the basics of how to build a scratch night piece. Then we will get you working together and partner you off with other actors, writers and directors to start working together on a piece of writing. If you have any short scripts already then please by all means bring your work down. Finally we will have a Q&A by This is England star Andrew Ellis. So please come down if your an actor, writer, director or just interested in our work and we can all learn and network together.
