We're back with our QLive Workshops, live on Instagram!
Every Wednesday in lockdown, we ran live sessions on Instagram. These were a series of short, interactive workshops and masterclasses, completely free to join, and we looked at everything from creative writing to improv, magic to poetry. And now we're back once a month to bring you more exciting and informative workshops!
Next up we have Roger Beaumont on directing. Roger began his professional acting career in 1970 at The Royal Court and over the next 20 years, worked professionally as an actor, writer and director in theatre, film, radio and TV. He ran the UK’s first Reminisence Theatre Project for three years in Exeter and has written plays for theatre and Radio 4. He has worked with directors as diverse as Bill Gaskell, Ken Campbell, Richard Eyre, and Derek Jarman. For three years he was an Associate Director for Pentabus Theatre Company.
He has directed over 40 productions for amateur theatre – 14, so far, for The Questors since joining in 2002 including Closer, Festen, Waiting for Godot, All My Sons, Streetcar Named Desire, The Ladykillers, Mojo, and our 90th Anniversary Production of George Orwell’s 1984. His
