Rehearsed Reading Workshop with Edward Bijl

One of the best ways for a writer to hear the play is through a rehearsed reading. These can often be a good way for trained actors to make a few extra dollars on the side and be a part of the creative process in developing a script. The two hour workshop will centre around the process of developing text for a rehearsed reading, making strong character choices, and bringing as much to the text as possible.
