TALKIN’ SHITE – Dialects for Improvisers

Ever start a scene with a delightful Irish brogue that devolves into bizarre Australian in just a sentence or two?  Work up a “stiff upper lip” that sags into drunk Jamaican?  This workshop is for YOU!  You’ll learn to distinguish Irish from Scottish, stiffen up your high British and talk Cockney like a gobsmacked toff.
