LIVERPOOL actress Pauline Daniels visited West Cheshire College to talk to acting students and help them prepare for their version of gritty play Unprotected.

Pauline, who starred in the play at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, offered advice on how to get ready for the roles and provided an insight into the creative process behind the development of the play and its characters.

Students also met two of the writers, Esther Wilson and Tony Green, who explained the research and writing aspects of the play.

Leianna Owens, a mature student from Wirral, said: “It was brilliant that Pauline Daniels was able to give up her time and come and share her knowledge and skills with us. We gained so much from our meeting.”

Paul Moss, programme leader in performing arts at West Cheshire College, said: “It was a great experience for our students to meet Pauline.

“She has a fantastic background in acting and was able to pass on a lot of advice to our students.

“It is important for our students to fully understand the background of the play and the characters as it will really benefit their performance.

“The visit really inspired them and they can’t wait for the performance.”

The performance of Unprotected will take place on Thursday, March 28, at 7.30pm at the John Prescott Theatre at the college’s Ellesmere Port campus on Sutton Way.
