Our first Master Class back has just been booked with Casting Director, Acting Coach, and dear friend of the Forge, Suzy Catliff.

We have done some incredible workshops with Suzy and this will be the first opportunity to work with her in person!

The Workshop

The workshop will be a unique opportunity to take part in a devising workshop, flexing your creative and improvisational skills to create a play “in a day!”

The Workshop will be based on creating and devising characters and techniques (Quickly) to create a bespoke piece of theatre.

This is a fast-paced, fun, and interactive physical workshop where Actors will explore the creation of characters and situations through a series of theatre games and improv exercises in a group scenario to form a storyline.
