This award winning documentary is about how class barriers prevent working class talent from breaking in and staying in the acting industry.

The profession is increasingly dominated by a narrow social elite that is squeezing out opportunity and damaging innovation. Established actors worry about where the next generation of talent from modest backgrounds is going to come from. Christopher Eccleston, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Maxine Peake and Samuel West are among those who feature in this film talking about the barriers to success.

And this is an issue not just for those who see their dreams thwarted because they do not have the ‘bank of mom and dad’ to back them. Who gets to be on our stages and screens matters to all of us. Whose stories get told, what images we have of ourselves, who we think ‘we’ are, helps shape our identities. And that is political.

The Acting Class won Best UK Feature at the Labour Film Festival 2017.
