The Acting Gymnasium, founded by Gavin McAlinden, runs weekly creative performance workshops that help individuals develop their acting skills, build confidence, exercise their imagination, improve vocal techniques and… perform in a professional show.
Acting Gymnasium’s talented cast excel with their superb timing and tremendous energy in this acrobatically verbal and physical comedy, A Flea in Her Ear at Theatro Technis.
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Friday 16 November 2018, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will quiz the director and cast of Acting Gymnasium’s new Irish production of classic French farce A Flea in Her Ear. Got any questions?
Big openers include Pinter 4 (Moonlight/Night School), the return of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Piccadilly Theatre), Caroline, or Change at the Playhouse and Hadestown at the National (Olivier Theatre).
I recently wrote about super-hot French playwright Florian Zeller’s London hat trick – with The Father, The Mother and, still running at the Menier Chocolate Factory, The Truth. As I sat down to catch up on my Theatre Diary of other plays I’ve seen recently, however, I realised London’s theatre landscape is going Gallic for far more than Zeller. In the West End alone at the moment, you can catch three heavyweight French offerings, even if you don’t realise it. All three have been given modern English-language makeovers and relocations.
