W I L D C A R D presents: A Workshop With Liz Stevenson
25th April 2018
10AM - 5PM
St Gabriel's Hall
In this workshop Olivier-nominated director Liz Stevenson will take a group of actors through a condensed version of her rehearsal process, looking specifically at staying active with the text in the early stages of discovery. Working through exercises and playing with a fresh text which Liz is interested in directing, this workshop is aimed at actors who are looking to hone their craft & potentially discover something new in a collaborative environment.
