Your guidance

Niall Phillips, Founder

Niall is an award winning theatre director and the Artistic Director of
Lonesome Schoolboy Productions.
He gained his QTS (Qualified teacher status) from Middlesex University.
Niall has worked in Europe, Turkey, Africa and all over the U.K. at some of
the best accredited drama schools, including RADA, Italia Conti,
Birmingham school of Acting and IDSA.

“Lonesome Workshops are ACE! Niall creates an incredibly safe, playful and collaborative working space where no judgements are made. He effortlessly and smoothly transitions between each of the actors’ duologue into improvisational exercises and throws exciting direction at them to challenge them and change it up. It was extremely beneficial for me as a Casting Director to be in such a creative room and see the actors in a slightly different and more relaxed setting to the audition room that I am used to seeing them in.”
