    “‘This course has allowed me to comprehend the difference between the practical and written elements of the subjects, as well as using both to further develop my skills as a director, performer, writer and theatre maker. Many of my lecturers consist of euthanistic theatre makers who work in the industry or critical writers of drama which inspires me to pursue a career in the arts.’ “
