FERGUS MORGAN - THE STAGE
“Burnt Lemon is a new company led by two young women bursting with talent and ideas. They are both intensely musical, they are accomplished dancers, they write with unique style and they are very acomplished actors. I was lucky enough to lead the acclaimed course which they will both complete in June 2018.”
