We have created a unique course that draws on the richness and rigour of the drama training at the Old Vic Theatre School but makes it available for 16-18 year olds. In short, it will deliver the highest quality training that will equip you to take the next steps to be a professional actor.

In year 1 you’ll be in a National Theatre Connections or National Student Drama Festival production and create a company to perform a Theatre in Education piece in schools. In Year 2 you’ll be cast in 2 of our professionally produced productions in Bristol.

The eponymous protagonist ‘wakes up’ in paradise and once they get over the shock of this fundamental contradiction of everything they believe in…..they get straight back to work….and continue their lifelong struggle for equality and fairness for all….even in death.

Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before...
