Drama Fountain is run by me, Sam Marsden. 
I studied Drama, Applied Theatre and Education at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London. I've worked as a freelance drama teacher for ten years, from Stagecoach academies in leafy suburbia to deprived schools in East London. I've worked for theatre companies, youth theatres and schools as a freelancer.  I then set up my own youth theatre, which quickly grew into one of the largest regional youth theatres in the country with 250 students attending each week. It was a blast, but now I’ve slowed down to have a baby. Teaching was so much fun, and now I'd like to share everything I've learned with you!
