Louise Thomas, one of our great RD Juniors talent, has recently featured in the opening of Gallowglass at The Malvern Theatre and now the reviews are coming in!

gallowglass-Review.jpeg
With lightning-fast set changes and a neurotically pounding piano dominating the soundtrack, this world stage premiere from Middle Ground Theatre Company is a real chiller of a thriller.
— Malvern Gazette
The sound design is effective, placing us on train platforms, in woods or in flats above pubs with ease.
— The Reviews Hub

RD takes great pride in introducing talented young people to the profession through RD Juniors. Well done Louise in 'seizing the day!' and making the most of every opportunity given to you. All of us here at RD are proud of you.
