The Actors Centre Meets: Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù
2020 has been a major year for actor Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, thanks to his critically acclaimed turn as Elliot Finch in Sky Atlantic’s Gangs of London, with critics heralding his “scene-stealing” and “superb” performance as the foil to the gruesome Wallace empire.
Ṣọpẹ́ made his big-screen debut in 2016, starring alongside Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in The Huntsman: Winter's War and has also featured in Sand Castle alongside Nicholas Hoult and Henry Cavill, and Criminal, starring Kevin Costner and Gary Oldman. In 2016, Ṣọpẹ́ was listed as one of Screen Daily's Stars of Tomorrow, a highly prestigious accolade bestowed annually by the veritable industry bible upon the next generation of screen talent.
Join Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù as he discusses his career to date and what the future may hold with actor and The Actors Centre Trustee Elliot Barnes-Worrell as part of The Actors Centre Meets on 13 July. Click here to book.
The Actors Centre Meets: Marina Carr
Described as “simply one of the finest playwrights of any generation”, Marina Carr remains one of the most urgent and relevant playwrights working in contemporary theatre.
Some of Marina’s most notable plays include The Mai (1994), Portia Coughlan (1996), By the Bog of Cats (1998), On Raftery’s Hill (1999), Woman and Scarecrow (2004) and Hecuba (2015). In 2016, she adapted Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina for the Abbey Theatre (Ireland’s National Theatre) and in 2019, Lorca’s Blood Wedding for The Young Vic — both of which debuted to international critical acclaim. Her seminal 1996 play, Portia Coughlan, is slated to run at The Young Vic later this year, starring Academy Award® nominee Ruth Negga in the haunting titular role.
Join Marina Carr as she discusses her prolific playwriting career and shares her advice for budding playwrights as part of The Actors Centre Meets on 23 July. Click here to book.
