The astonishingly swift impact of Bow Street can be seen on Irish and UK screens with increasing regularity. It is a brilliant, inspirational place — as much a state of mind as a physical space or set of courses. The state of mind is what sets it apart: passionate, warm and full of character. When you combine this with experienced and inventive teaching, you’ve got pure gold.

Jack Reynor - Actor

” Being part of The Factory/Bow Street was an invaluable experience for me. Its an environment that’s safe and you can afford to experiment, be expressive in a non self conscious way and that was really important in helping me to grow and develop. It’s fertile soil that allows you to hone your skills and develop yourself as an actor.”
