How To Act

About How To Act

Internationally-renowned theatre director Anthony Nicholl has travelled the globe on a life-long quest to discover the true essence of theatre.

Today he gives a masterclass, demonstrating first-hand, the methods he developed in Africa and Asia.

Promise, an aspiring actress, has been chosen to participate. What unfolds between them forces Nicholl to question all of his assumptions about his life and art.

How to Act explores the contemporary realities of personal, cultural and economic exploitation through two individuals drawn together in the theatre. Both believe in truth, but each has their own version of it.

Cast: Anthony Nicholl and Jade Ogugua

Written and directed by Graham Eatough
Associate director Paul Brotherston
Lighting Design by Karen Bryce
Sound Design by Matt Padden
Choreography by EJ Boyle
Fight Director Raymond Short
Dramaturgy Placement Cairan McLaggan
