Want to know what was going on in the director’s mind during rehearsal, or how the actors have developed their performances? Our Q&A sessions are designed to give students a clear understanding of how director, designer and actors have realised the play they’re seeing.
Delivered by the resident director of One Man, Two Guvnors, this is the ideal pre-performance preparation for your students.
Price: £2.50 per student with complimentary tickets for teachers accompanying the group.
To book a pre-show Q&A, please contact Ebun Ali on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7452 3388.
