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."
