Workshop – 23 March 2021

Lads it’s Sunday evening you know what that means?

New workshop week is what it means, and this Tuesday we have none other than Mr. Stephen Rush himself on his debut Workshop!

It’s gonna be a goodin!

Creating Engaging Verbal Structures

We’ll talk about how we use language to effectively tell stories at a granular level, how to quickly cut the dead weight from a piece of writing, and I’ll share tools and techniques I find helpful for building something aurally and structurally intriguing. I’m a simple-minded kept man that fritters away my exorbitant free time with novitiate writing and grandmaster drinking. I am a graduate of nowhere and a veteran of one Shindig. I had a brief fling with No Drama before Covid tore us apart and now I pine for my lost love while forgetting to answer her zoom calls.

Join us this Tuesday at 7pm!

Can’t wait to see your faces 😉

Curtain Call – Episode 11

Happy Saturday folks!

Looking for something to listen to on your daily walks? Look no further than our fantastic new Curtain Call episode!

This episode of Curtain Call Seán has a conversation with actor and poet Andrei Callanan.

They discuss all things acting, writing, theatre and delve into the foundation of inspiration, actor-director relationships, overcoming shyness, adapting to acting for the radio, poetry, the implication of words into monologues and the writing process and much more.

Andrei is one of No Drama’s diverse talented actors and valued members, and has several radio, stage and online credits to his name and is one of the main characters in our summer production of Theresa Rebeck’s Seminar.
