Saltpeter Productions presents a week of subsidised workshops for performers, held at People Show Studios, Bethnal Green, in conjunction with our debut Halloween show Death of Tintagel, a Peter Morris world premier.
From Monday July 12th - Saturday July 17th our workshop leaders generously come together to support the spirit of Saltpeter's ethos - to create and explore new theatrical possibilities.
Prices are deliberately affordable to encourage actors to try out new approaches to working. Details on www.saltpeterproductions.com
