Dead Rabbits Theatre produce, in partnership with Holly Adomah Thompson and the University of Greenwich, a two-week masterclass series in May 2020 which offered insight into the theatre sector and explored various roles, from playwriting to acting, to networking and finance, supported by the University of Greenwich.

The masterclasses featured discussions from Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (playwright), Emma Dennis-Edwards (playwright), Philip Morris & Izzy Rabey (Trainee Directors at The Royal Court), Abigail Sewell (Director), Jamie D. Hunt (Actor), Megan Prescott (Actor), Arthur Jones (Theatre Marketer, Producer and Theatre Reviewer), Susanna Italiano (Finance & HR Manager at The Yard Theatre) and Holly Adomah Thompson (Events Producer and Arts Marketer) leading a masterclass on Marketing & Networking. Alumni and Sound Designer Simon Scott also curated a two-part podcast series to provide entry level tips and advice on how to get a career in his profession.

During Covid-19 pandemic we changed the way we work and helped to create 10 industry masterclasses. They were produced by us in partnership with Holly Adomah Thompson, the University of Greenwich and the Arts Council of England. A two-week masterclass series started running in May 2020 and offered insight into the theatre sector and explored various roles, from playwriting to acting, to networking and finance.


We are delighted to share some of the tips from these online sessions with you.
