Young and Talented is very proud for our BYT acting tutor Roy Alexander Weise, on the announcement that he has won the JMK Young Director Award. Roy is a talented and vital part of our Y&T team, helping to guide and shape our young people. He has been awarded a £25,000 bursary towards his production of Mountaintop by Katori Hall. The production will be staged at The Young Vic later this year. We cannot wait to see it.

Roy, who was trainee director at The Royal Court, has also been receiving 4 star reveiws for his professional directing debut of Stone Face at The Finborough Theatre. This new play, by Eve Leigh, has received 3 Offie Award nominations for Best Female Performance, Best New Play, and Best Set Designer. Stone Face is on until the 11th of June and not to be missed.

It is great to see all of Roy’s hard work paying off. Well done Roy from everyone at Young and Talented.
