  1. I would like to know if you can help in finding accommodation in New York? I am a qualified and experienced actress (Kingston University London, The Royal central school of speech and Drama, University of London, The British Film Institute, UCL.) I am interested to do a solo performance I wrote that has duration between to 10-20 minutes.
    Do you help promoting the play when scheduled for your theatre repertoire and is it advertised in your website?
    Please let me know
    Any help and support would be much appreciated!

    1. Hi Anna,

      Please contact the organisers directly for more information on this as we’ve simply re-posted it for your convenience.

      Hope you find what you are looking for!
