  1. Hi Phillipa,

    My name is Michael Kinsey – I’m a young actor from Yorkshire and have just finished training.

    I was having a browse on Theatre 503 and stumbled upon ‘VIEW FROM HERE: YORKSHIRE’.

    I wanted to express my interest in being a part of the event.

    I’ve done lots of scratch night type things but was drawn to this because of the Yorkshire link.

    I’d be grateful if you could pass on my interest and CV to the relevent people.

    Here is my spotlight link: http://www.spotlight.com/interactive/7215-8941-6737

    Warmest wishes,
    Michael
