Following popular demand from latest workshop on Meisner Technique, we have arranged for a demonstration given by Stephen Bayly with the help of two Meisner trained actors, on the basic principles of Sanford Meisner, as amplified by Mamet and others, as a tool for directors to learn to work with actors, and for actors to achieve a truthful, realistic, in-the-moment performance on stage or screen.
Free to SMAW students and a small charge of £25 for professionals.

Places are limited. You are advised to Bookearly.
