A creative, informal workshop tailored for teenage girls aged 15-18, led by My Name is Saoirse writer and performer Eva O'Connor and assistant director Tara Doolan.
In a world where girls are often forced to conform, say the right things or even silenced, theatre is an essential medium of expression. In this session, we will examine strong female voices in theatre and help you find your own. We will look at various female monologues and then through discussion and exercises we will focus on creating characters of our own. We will explore what makes a character strong, individual, and intriguing.
This workshop is free to book, when purchasing a ticket for My Name is Saorise. No experience necessary. Please contact Sunniva Ramsay for more info and to book a place.
Note: Contains strong language.
