With Mark and Alice.


Play & Comic Characters! 

Join the Performers' Playground for a day of Play and comic characters.

In the spirit of children you will play, surprise yourselves and discover the sensitivity and bravery required to play with an audience.

You will create characters through bold physical and vocal choices that can be comic and outrageous or dialled down to something more naturalistic. We provide a non psychological approach to character that taps into the pleasure to move your body, play with your voice and text and have an impact on an audience.


More info about Mark, Alice and The Performers Playground:



“Enriching. Effervescent. A course that teaches you about the unknown and the unexplainable parts of performing. That encourages you to explore the depths of your own creativity and imagination and emboldens you to share them with the audience" 

- Ex Student Currently training at Fourth Monkey



"Through listening, stillness and fun what Mark and Alice offer is something rare that I haven't found anywhere else" 

- Ex Student/RADA Graduate Keaton Guimaraes-Tolley
