Senior Lecturer in Acting
Patricia Logue is a Senior Lecturer in Acting and an in-house Director for the Richard Burton Company at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. She trained in Acting at the City University of New York (MFA) and in Voice at Central School of Speech & Drama, London (MA).
Before joining the Acting Department at RWCMD, Patricia was a professional actor and acting coach and as a text and accent specialist she worked extensively in theatres and television both in the UK and Ireland. She continues to work professionally both as a Director and as a Text Associate on productions outside of College, when scheduling permits. Recent projects include Dialect Coach on Derry Girls, Channel Four, Text Associate on The Importance of Being Earnest, Vaudeville Theatre, West End and Director of Lose Yourself at the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff – where she has been an Associate Artist since 2016.
Patricia is passionate about teaching the craft of acting, passionate about training young actors to an excellent standard and genuinely interested in the continued growth, development and strengthening of the College’s acting courses. She is an advocate for diversity, inclusivity and widening access in both actor training and the wider professional industry. Patricia was an invited speaker on ‘The Future of Postgraduate Training’ at the Federation of Drama Schools Conference (2019).
Patricia’s projects show a deep desire to engage with diverse audiences through an exploration of contemporary social and aesthetic issues. Her dramaturgy is dependent upon extensive research into contexts that often involve extreme states of being, such as in Not I (2016) and Lose Yourself (2019).
