“Regrets? – I’ve had a few...”

John P. Kelly delivers a "highly illustrated" talk (all illustrations given by the audience) on his time in the trade, and on the great art which has seduced him continuously for forty years.

Questions will be bandied about at will, for example...

  • What is stage movement anyway?
  • Is theatre a visual art anymore?
  • Who’s the boss in rehearsal?
  • What does PACE mean on a stage?
  • Should we be bothering with make-up?
  • Do I have to be 20 to play a 20-year-old?
  • Does competition improve standards?
  • Are religion and theatre mutually exclusive?
  • Does magic exist?
  • ...and no doubt, several more.

John_P_KellyJohn will also compare festival systems and rules in Canada with the UK and Ireland: Which is better?  What can we learn?

Bring your questions.  Be ready to disagree.
