  • "Adam is a kind and generous practitioner with a great knowledge of the Meisner Technique - I would most certainly recommend attending if you're serious about being a genuine & truthful actor."

                                                                                                            - Andrew Fletcher, Professional Singer & Actor


  • "As a director and writer I've found the course very useful as a more specific approach to acting technique than just 'feeling it'. I am more convinced than ever about there being a gift of connection and also that people are losing it more and more. I think the exercises used for this acting technique break those walls.  Finally I cannot speak highly enough of Adam who ran the courses. Kind, considerate and intelligent delivery throughout, great pieces chosen and all executed cleanly and with a soft energy which allowed an easy flow of communication between himself and the students."

  • "Opened my mind to the true art of acting.  Watching the actors totally accept their emotions and live in the moment was stunning to watch and I'd never seen such beauty and realism in improvisation. Such an exciting and brilliant technique which I would consider now as my acting religion"
