Welcome to Grow Your Own Solo Show.
A course for you to develop your show, grow your performance and get your ideas out there.
 In no time at all, with our help, you’ll be on stage, in front of your audience, sharing your work.
It (the showcase) was a night for me to remember for sure. I’m pinching myself. 
Thank you so much for the course. I  couldn’t imagine on that first night that I’d have written a short play (rather than just a scene or two) and pull it off on stage without set, props or anything bar the music. Sarah Hickingbottom (The Woman Who Conceived the Pill, 2017)
We’ve worked with over 50 students since 2012, and turned out many, many successful shows, including award winners, new commissions and multi-star reviews.

“Jonathan, I cannot thank you enough for unlocking something 
me that has been laying stagnant for so long. 
Your course has enabled me to write my story with confidence.  Your attention to detail allowed me to focus on the characters and what they wanted to say. I was encouraged to write from the heart, no matter how it would come out and that’s just what I did. Thanks to you, I have now been commissioned not only as an actor but also as a writer. I would recommend this course to anyone who has a story to tell.”  Lorna Gayle 2017 (“Nine Night”)

“Found this course so helpful, so much fabulous support and input not only from Jonathan but also all the other talented participants. Turned what can be a lonely business into one where I learned much, laughed lots and achieved far more than I hoped. Can’t recommend it enough. If ya thinking about it DO IT!!!” Lianne Campbell, 2016 (“Lessons From Leela”)
