What To Do When Nobody Knows Who You Are
This seminar hosted by prolific casting director, Ellie Collyer-Bristow, and hugely successful solo writer and performer, David William Bryan, will look at how to get more work, how to get theatre auditions and how to create and perform work for yourself.
David William Bryan trained at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC. After appearing in commercials, theatre productions and feature films in the early part of his career, he decided to focus entirely on specialising in self-producing, writing and performing one-person plays. Since 2015, he has built his personal brand from scratch without an agent and his latest production ‘In Loyal Company’ has sold out fifty consecutive performances since August 2018. He is about to embark on a huge UK tour in 2019.
