A VERY SPECIAL EVENT!
Join two of the Guild's most illustrious alumni, Chris Drummond (Artistic Director, Brink Productions) and Andy Packer (Artistic Director, Slingsby) in a FREE Q&A / workshop / masterclass in Directing for Theatre.
This FREE masterclass will provide an Open Space for all attendees to ask our guests for their unique professional perspectives on Theatre and Directing, and to have the answers to those questions discussed, workshopped and expanded upon in an inclusive and supportive group environment.
Following the workshop we invite all attendees to join with our guests for informal drinks and nibbes provided by the Theatre Guild.
