William Sutton


William Sutton acted and acts in theatres, in film and TV, on green screen, on location, for seminars, through corporate role-plays, at readings, upon diverse improv & comedy podia, gives Sonnet workshops in schools and universities, and even directed a one-act play. He is a theatre animal and a dedicated self-study student, always circling the ideas incorporating what it takes to give a good performance, whether improvised or rehearsed.

He mastered Shakespearean English by learning and memorizing all the Sonnets of Shakespeare. Sutton attended the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford on Avon to quench his desire to learn more. He joined the Passion in Practice ensemble of Ben Crystal in 2010 and toured with them until 2018. His passion for Shakespeare has only grown over the 30+ years studying and working with his words. By extension any other writer worth their salt.

He also loves the study of accents and dialects; and uses the International Phonetic Alphabet where necessary. Writers write and actors interpret and resurrect what they write. The connecting factor is words in ink becoming puffs of sound and air in speech. There’s where the adventure begins.

His classes can be bitter, salty, sweet, sour, or savoury. Something for every ones taste. Umami, don’t believe me, ask around.
