Marcia Carr Workshop with QU Players

On Monday I was fortunate to be among only eight people who were selected to take part in a workshop facilitated by Marcia Carr, a professional actor, musician and dancer from the National Youth Theatre.
She was incredibly energetic and got so much activity packed in to the class that I was shocked to see that when we had finished we had only been there for two hours! We covered physicality, voice and authority, and the fact that it was suck an intimate group, she was able to help us each address some of our weaknesses.
It was certainly one of the best one-off workshops I have been to and it is a testament to the work put into the Queen's University Players that they are able to invite facilitators of such magnitude to take classes, so hat tips to Justyn MacKay, Shiraz Engineer and the others for that.
No doubt there'll be more great workshops from them in the future.

Performing in Accidental Theatre's Fast & Loose program

I am teaming up with Accidental Theatre again for their inaugural Fast & Loose program. It is going to a chaotic staging of a short play that will have been conceived a mere 24 hours prior.

Working in conjunction with The Queen's University Players, and being performed as part of the Queen's Quarter Weekends - an initiative to promote the cultural value of the unique area of South Belfast that surrounds the University - the project is the brainchild of Accidental's dramaturg, Emily De Dakis.

I am doing my play with Jack Geary, who I have been working with on The 39 Steps as well as Incident at Vichy, so I have a good working relationship with him.

It's being performed this Saturday evening in The Space in the Queen's Student's Union building, so come along and see four plays for a measly £3 (or £2 for QU Players members, or with a Romeo and Juliet ticket stub).
