David: I gained friends, professions and a new perspective

David Monteith developed a love of acting at school, but was encouraged to get "proper' qualifications", so he ended up with a degree in biology and working in various disciplines for the next 20 years.

But then David spent a year in Jamaica, and had time to reflect.  "I decided that after years of thinking about acting, I wanted to find out what training for it would be like.  I enrolled on an introductory acting course at City Lit.  On the course I gained friends, hobbies, new professions and a new perspective.

"I now pursue acting professionally and teach at City Lit.  I have also started directing.  City Lit continues to help me develop my skills through teaching as well as learning."
