About the tutor

Originally from Longford, Lorna Quinn studied Drama and Theatre Studies at University College Cork and trained full-time for two years at the Gaiety School of Acting. Lorna is also a qualified Speech and Drama teacher with the Leinster School of Music and Drama.

For the last fifteen years, Lorna has worked professionally on both stage and screen, playing leading roles at Dublin’s Gate Theatre and many theatre venues nationwide. Most recently, Lorna concluded an exciting storyline on Fair City playing the role of Lucy Mallon.

When not acting, Lorna teaches drama in Longford and Dublin and also works as a voice-over artist. Lorna is thrilled to be a tutor on this year’s DLI Summer School programme, and is really looking forward to meeting everyone for a very special week of fun, play and creativity!


Course Outline

This action-packed week will involve creative play, group work, scene-work, improvisation, text-based performance work, directing, voice-work, practical methods of relaxation and class discussions about acting, technique and our own responses to work shared throughout the week. Each day will involve creative drama games and group activities to promote a strong, supportive working atmosphere from which creativity will naturally and comfortably arise. Improvisation and scene work will form a large part of each day with students working in smaller groups and pairs.

Specific texts chosen for the course will also be shared in advance of attending, so that students can immerse themselves in the presentation, direction and critical reflection of each piece during the week of performance work and artistic study. The focus of this course will be to provide an excellent toolkit for performance in a creative, safe and enjoyable environment.
