Actor Awareness are a campaign dedicated to helping actors who don't have the opportunity to reach platforms that people from financially secure backgrounds do. We aim to help the untrained or struggling actor who constantly keeps hitting the class ceiling.

One of our biggest and most successful initiatives is the new writing nights we hold sponsored by casting giants Spotlight. Through these nights we have met and sourced some amazing talent. Last year we gave 4 scratch show an opportunity and deadline to turn their 15 minute play into a 1 hour show. We then gave them the chance to showcase it at a London theatre. Out of those shows we had three professionally produced plays. ‘A Staffroom’ one of the most successful shows heads to Queens Hornchurch and Edinburgh Fringe this year!

So we return with 6 nights and 8 Companies at Barons Court Theatre, London, 17-22nd July. Actor Awareness New Writing Festival and each show ends with a Q & A with the writer.

Are you interested in new upcoming undiscovered talent, writing, directing and acting? This is the festival to be at!

They’re teaching our children, but are they teaching the right things?
Three young teachers navigate their way through adulthood and educating. A peek inside a state school staff room. With fad diets, Instagram abs and the government imposing a sugar tax, do the educators even know what is good for us?
