In my training as a facilitator and actor I’ve been able to learn techniques and understand why we use them. When I approach a workshop filled with new people I try out different methods and see what gives the best result. I command the room and explore with games, movement and most of all no fear, it’s a safe space.
I will use lots of music and relaxation exercises to help explore and discover. I will play a lot of games and make connections between real life to bring the acting to life. Majority of what I will do is build you’re confidence so that you don’t have any inhibitions. Whatever works best for you I will use.
I am Laura-may Hassan, a first class Drama and Applied Theatre Graduate from Drama St.Marys Twickenham. Im an Actor, Singer, Workshop Facilitator and Director.
Experiences include: working with the Richmond Shakespeare Society’s Young Actors Company as the Assistant Director for 4 going on 5 years. I have just become the Director for the Junior Acting Company. I have worked with vulnerable adults to bring into light the subject of consent in all aspects of life, through drama workshops and ending in a show of all the different types of consent we explored. I also have worked with children in Chile who live in a protection unit giving them drama tools to express themselves and to have fun. I love being able to help people feel more confident and fearless on stage.
I have worked with all abilities, people who have never acted before and people who have acted a lot. Everyone and anyone is welcome no matter your ability. Please get in touch via my email on (concealed information) to enquire about classes.

Laura-May is such an incredible tutor for acting and theatre, not only does she inspire her students but is able to connect with them on a friendship level whilst keeping to a professional manner. Laura- May is extremely talented in the area of acting and performing and has been such a help to myself personally and others dealing with stage fright and giving people confidence they didn’t know they had. I cannot credit her enough.
I’m the Co - Artistic Director of my own Theatre Company: Poetic Fools Theatre, and have been working with Laura May for 4 months.
She brings a consistent buoyant feeling and energy into the room which fuels the days work. She also offers valuable insight and ideas into the project through the workshops she confidently leads.
She has a down to earth, straight forward way delivering direction which has worked great in Poetic Fools.
Laura May is an excellent tutor and was brilliant at directing myself and other teenage actors. As a new member to the group, she made me feel welcomed with engaging and enjoyable workshops and made sure everyone got involved. She was enthusiastic and approachable and made sure she took part in all the activities with us.
Laura- May and i have worked together on a play, and has helped me immensely. She co- directed the play and worked on our characterisation through workshops. She is a great leader, approachable, creative and a fabulous motivator. I would 100% recommend Laura-May to anybody!
Laura-May has an amazing understanding of all matters theatrical. She has helped me with two productions at the Mary Wallace Theatre, in which she was the assistant director. She creates a hugely comfortable and entertaining atmosphere, whilst providing invaluable support and insight as to how to improve any acting skill.
