This workshop offers the opportunity to discuss with Lucy Jenkins (credits include West End production of War Horse and national tour of History Boys) her take on the casting process, to read for her and receive honest feedback and advice.

A script will be sent out for you to prepare. As well as offering you the opportunity to get up on your feet and read with Lucy, this part of the workshop often throws up points about the casting process in general which everyone in the group can take advantage of. The workshop will conclude with a Q&A session.
