From Alloa, Joseph Young is a student on the degree course in acting at the Guildford School of Acting. He describes himself as a ‘driven and hungry individual'.
At the end of his second year, he won the Director’s Award and represented GSA in Stratford-upon-Avon in an all-schools workshop with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Joseph’s ultimate ambition is to work with the RSC and in film. Joseph appeared in a new play staged at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival. He has been put forward to take part in the prestigious BBC Carlton Hobbes competition.
At the start of his third year at GSA, Joseph put on his own production of “Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me” by Frank McGuinness and was part of the GSA of “The Shakespeare Review” which went on tour at the end of 2008.
How the Award Helped
The Dewar Arts Award helps toward the costs of Joseph’s final year at GSA.
Since the Award
Joseph graduated successfully in 2009 from Guildford School of Acting. Whilst still at GSA and with a group of fellow students, Joseph put on a production of Jonathon Lewis's Our Boys in the Tabard Theatre, Chiswick. The play was extremely well received and led to Joseph being signed to an agent. He now works under the name Joseph Creeth.
