“Jb’s course was the springboard I needed to take my seed of an idea from a dream to an award-winning solo show. Without his forceful nudges, positive support and playful but practical approach, it would not have happened. I’m very grateful.”  Kate Darach, Moontales. 2014/2015 (and performer 2019 Festival of Solo Theatre)

“Jonathan, I cannot thank you enough for unlocking something in me that has been laying stagnant for so long. Your course has enabled me to write my story with confidence.  Your attention to detail allowed me to focus on the characters and what they wanted to say. I was encouraged to write from the heart, no matter how it would come out and that’s just what I did. Thanks to you, I have now been commissioned not only as an actor but also as a writer. I would recommend this course to anyone who has a story to tell.”  Lorna Gayle 2017 (“Nine Night”)

“Found this course so helpful, so much fabulous support and input not only from Jonathan but also all the other talented participants. Turned what can be a lonely business into one where I learned much, laughed lots and achieved far more than I hoped. Can’t recommend it enough. If ya thinking about it DO IT!!!” Lianne Campbell, 2016 (“Lessons From Leela”)
