Jonny Bussell Senior Lecturer on the School’s BA (Hons) Acting for Stage and Screen degree course adds, “We are really excited for our students to present their work this spring.  Our first, second and third years will all be working towards sharing a range of devised pieces working alongside students from the BA (Hons) Film, TV & Theatre Production course.

“Allowing students to develop their own practice is central to the ethos of the programme as we want to encourage the students to be the practitioners they want to be, making the work they want to see.”
