A shameless plug for the services I offer, but in my defence some of them are free.
These workshops are usually suitable for up to 20 people, depending on venue. If you'd like to arrange a workshop please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the details.
Prices for the workshops vary depending on costs and are usually free for charities, education and festivals.

|2 - In the beginning - the first act|
|3 - Narrative - the second act|
