As an actor I’m a great admirer of David Mamet’s plays, films and TV series (just finished watching “The Unit” on Netflix). I’ve also appeared in one of his plays – Charles in “The Shawl”, maybe not one of his better known pieces, but it’s an intriguing bit of theatre.

When I saw that he was running  a masterclass in dramatic writing on http://www.masterclass.com I had to take a look. It looked really exciting and after about five seconds of hesitation I signed up. I’m really glad I did as it’s proving to be well worth the time and the relatively modest investment ($90 for 26 videos, a workbook, a forum and lifetime access ).

Over the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing my journey through the masterclass in this blog. So if you’re interested, please join me.

Oh, and by the way, here’s the trailer:
