Digital showcase

In place of our regular live showcase, we have brought together a Digital Showcase to feature the skills and talents of our graduating year. 

Here you can explore Tom Claxton’s digital showreel, which includes theatrical and screen scenes, self-created work made during the Covid-19 lockdown, audio reel and a short film written and directed by professional film-makers.

Self-created work

Across the 12-week period of lockdown, all graduating students on the two year and three year acting courses collaborated with a dramaturg to develop and create their own self-created piece.

The MFA Acting students created pieces that ranged from Mockumentaries, monologues to drag shows. These were personal responses to the prompt of why you, why now, who for? Dramaturged and creatively supported by Lauren Mooney and Laura Bridgeman.
