In our community there are so many eyes on you. Directors, actors, writers, producers. Inspired by you, noticing you, learning from you. Everyone in our community has something to give and observe. This is why so many of the projects we initiate lead to a multitude of different opportunities, further collaborations, recommendations and professional paid work. It's so easy for things to start happening once you are in amongst our community, creating and making, and that is one reason so many of our artists have stayed with us for years.⁠

This is a picture from one of our technical rehearsals at Southwark Playhouse for The Directors Club Showcase, in a moment we're all laughing about something (of course!) As well as producing great theatre, we like a great laugh too. There is always A LOT to get through on these tech days, and because we have such a supportive and strong community our spirits are always high and super productive. These days are so much fun, we have the best time together as a community and produce a top quality showcase. ⁠

Did you know that at Director's Cut we produce a show called Art from the Heart where artists are invited to share their art from their heart? Some truly inspiring, powerful and personal stories have been told in this show.⁠

Art from the Heart is the perfect platform to try out new material and share what's on your heart. We also welcome all artistic forms, with an artist painting throughout the show, as well as live music, physical theatre, new writing and devised pieces. Some of these pieces for the show have even been created and discovered in our workshops when responding to exercises and then selected to be performed in the showcase at Southwark Playhouse.⁠

Being involved in the show is an extra part of our membership for artists, check the details here:⁠

Today we celebrate our 7 year anniversary since our theatre company began. Since then we have worked with hundreds of professional actors, writers, directors and producers, produced thousands of short plays and events in some of London's top theatres, and in the last two years initiated and made hundreds of short films too. We have also created and led thousands of workshops with all our artists and given them a home - somewhere to come to create and grow. We have been on such a journey and we are grateful to be able to say we can celebrate 7 years, because despite a pandemic and our industry closing, we are here, still standing, and that resilience and story is a testament to how strong our community and creativity is.⁠

Thank you to all our incredible actors, writers, directors and producers who have joined us on this epic journey. We are 7 years in, with many more memories to come, stories to be told and friendships to be made.⁠

A huge thank you to the amazing theatres that provide us with our HOMES for The Directors Club @swkplay The Actors Club @parktheatrelondon The Writers Club @calderbookshop and the theatres that have supported us @thepleasance @rosetheatrekingston @stratford_east We are blessed to be working in and with such inspiring buildings and artists.⁠

Some stories are most powerful when they are told without words. Since most of what we communicate and read is body language. At Director's Cut we work with playwrights and new writing, but also with physical theatre, influenced by Jacques Le Coque based practices. These are some of our most popular workshops and loved by our community members. They cultivate intimacy, connection and profound discoveries in the rehearsal room. ⁠

Sound interesting to you? Check out one of our actors or directors clubs where you can explore these techniques for yourself.⁠

Starting back in May.⁠

So many of our professional actors tell us the reason they stayed pursuing acting during difficult times was because they always had the actors club to keep them inspired, active, and working with incredible artists. Then their careers have opened up in so many exciting avenues and we are just glad to be an anchor for so many!⁠

If you want to be a part of a solid and inspired community, and surround yourself with talent, then join The Actor's Club - THE club for professional actors. And you get to work with our directors and playwrights in the other clubs too!⁠

Starting back in May! Don't miss this great opportunity to be with us this summer!⁠
