Andrew Cowie – Bath Spa University

Personal statement

I am an Equity-member actor, director and playwright. My plays include translations of Chekhov's Three Sisters, Schiller's Mary Stuart and Strindberg's Miss Julie, all available from Amazon as a Kindle ebook.

My original plays include My Life In Art (Time Out Critics' Choice), The Authorised Version (The Independent newspaper's Edinburgh Fringe Pick Of The Day) and Friction, all also available as a Kindle ebook.

My MA at Warwick was in Drama and Theatre Education where I was taught by Jonathon Neelands and Joe Winston and they remain the biggest influence on my pedagogy. I have taught drama at all levels; primary, secondary and tertiary, and I ran a youth theatre for five years.

I specialise in Shakespeare, and prior to teaching at Bath Spa I ran drama workshops for several years at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford-upon-Avon. For more information please visit my website.

I was voted Teacher Of The Year by the students at Bath Spa in 2014-15.
