Confessions of a (Struggling) Actress

126 pages1 hour


QUESTION: Jo, what advice do you have for my daughter who wants to pursue an acting career? ANSWER: She’ll need perseverance and determination, but if she’s got what it takes she’ll get there. Tell her to give me a buzz – I’d be happy to go for a coffee and give her all the advice she needs. *HONEST* ANSWER: I have no advice for her. I really don’t need even more competition, thank you very much... * * * Join Jo as she follows her dream and takes the first steps on the path that leads towards a (hopefully) glittering career as a professional actress. You’ll share the highs and lows of her turbulent first years in the business as she comes to realise that her chosen career is (much) harder than she’d ever thought. Frank, funny and insightful, Jo gives you a rare glimpse into the reality of this ‘glamorous’ industry, as she makes it through drama school unscathed (just), attends auditions (a lot!) and even tries out for reality TV... before finally getting a job and going on tour. (Yay!) INCLUDING: * How I got into drama school * Putting on a cabaret for cash * How I feel about dance recalls * Singing with a broken heart * All I know about auditions * Tales from on tour * The after-show blues * Going on as cover
