Saturday 16 June, 10am – 5pm

This workshop is available to 16–21-year-olds

This free project includes a ticket to see An Octoroon on Wednesday 13 June at 7.30pm You must be available for all sessions and to watch the performance in order to take part.

Sign up for a weekend of anarchic performance making inspired by the themes and performance styles of An Octoroon, with Ned Bennett (Director) and Steven Kavuma (Assistant Director). Using techniques from the show’s rehearsal process you will create expressive performances that challenge the relationship between performers and audience. 

This weekend is for actors, director, designers and writers. Expect to have a go at everything and to create a messy and raucous piece of work together.

How to apply:
We will be asking everyone to attend a practical audition workshop on Wednesday 6 June, so we can meet you, play some games and find out more about who you are. Please let us know which times you are able to attend when you apply. Click here to apply.


We would never want the cost of a project to prevent anyone from taking part. A limited number of travel bursaries are available. If you would like to apply for one, please indicate this on the form when you apply.
