Anna Himali Howard in rehearsals for the Roundabout Season 2016
Stef O'Driscoll


The Paines Plough team are always looking for ways we can break down the process behind touring new plays in order to provide support for theatre makers throughout their careers.

We run loads of workshops every year all over the country. We run workshops about...

/ Directing
/ Acting
/ Writing
/ Producing
/ General Management
/ Setting up and running a company

And lots more.

We run workshops at events like TheatreCraft and alongside our productions on tour.

An informal conversation with Joint Artistic Director of Paines Plough James Grieve exploring new writing and touring. James will offer an insight into Paines Plough’s work and ideology, and his own working practise. How does it differ preparing for an audition or rehearsal process for a new play as opposed to a classic? What demands does touring place on actors, and how do you prepare? The session will be open to attendees to ask questions throughout, so topics can include whatever you like, from producing your own show in Edinburgh to tips on how to get seen and get cast in new play.

This workshop is hosted by the Actors Centre. You can book here
