DYT members – present and past – and friends are invited to join us, from the comfort of your own home, for a series of weekly Question & Answer sessions with experienced theatre professionals.

Each week, special guests (many of whom are ex-DYTers) will tell us a little bit about their journey, how they got to where they are, who and what inspired them, the challenges they faced to make it and what they’re up to these COVID days.

If you’ve got a question about theatre, being (or becoming) a theatre professional, now’s your chance to #askthepro.


More announcements after DYT workshops every Saturday, on Facebook and Instagram.
