It’s 2018, and thankfully there are more and more TV/Film/Web and theater projects that include roles from all over the world. The idea of a Standard American dialect or RP or the “correct” way to speak is giving way to the specificity of the who/what/where and the history of each character.

Join us for this class where we open up a new way of looking at dialects — with a concentration on the UK for this round — to give you the tools for getting more work in today’s projects. There will be monologues and scene work from various plays penned by British authors from the turn of the 20th century through today.
