Tradition Meets Trend: Exploring the Connection of Classic and New Plays 

Scene Study

Saturday 16th March
10am - 1pm


What we do

Actors. Emerging Directors. Leading Professionals

On Saturdays actors & emerging directors of all ages are welcome to take part in our drop-in scene studies. Our mission is to create a truly safe space to connect, play, grow, learn & work on that craft with the guidance of leading directors.

Workshops will take place at Downside Fisher Youth Club, Coxson Place, Druid Street, London, SE1 2EZ. A 10 minute walk from London Bridge Station.

Workshops help support the running of the Downside Fisher Youth Club who help socially excluded children & young people from Bermondsey & its neighbouring areas.

I really loved the workshop because I learned something new that was very effective I will take with me for the rest of my acting career

Poppy Snow, HOA Agency
I loved having the opportunity to work with Simon, he brought a fantastic energy in the room and created a safe and collaborative space to work and play. I really enjoyed exploring scenes from Jack Thorne’s A Christmas Carol and having the opportunity to explore & build on my choices and be re-directed and inspired by Simon’s wealth of knowledge and passion for the play! I haven’t experienced a workshop like this in a long time - it is worth every penny!

Imogen Wilde, IML
The workshop was brilliant and felt like being in a (very exciting) rehearsal room for a couple of hours. It was creative and collaborative and enriching.

That was fun. I think it’s such a brilliant thing you are doing. Thanks for inviting me to be a part of it.

I loved that we got up on our feet straight away, I loved how enthusiastic everyone was, I liked how the exercises were new and something I hadn’t done before!

Lizzie Schenk, Jessica Lowe at Simon & How
Fun and interesting workshop, in an unusual format. Great chance to meet some likeminded actors, and understand a little of how Josh works, and would tackle a complex script. Looking forward to the next one.

Other participants

Really enjoyed the deep discussions we shared all together whilst working through the scripts. A refreshing atmosphere for a workshop!
I liked that I didn’t feel pressure or nervous in the room, the director was friendly and communicative, easy to talk to and discuss where to go with the text
