Laura will receive your Spotlight CV prior to the workshop (please make sure it is up-to-date) and will then send out a scene for you to select / prepare shortly beforehand.

This will be a practical workshop in which you will be performing scenes from scripts Laura has cast and will include honest feedback and advice.

TAG workshops offer a supportive environment in which to work. All members perform their scenes in front of each other - offering a unique insight and opportunity for us as a group. There will be an informal Q&A towards the end of the workshop.
