About me

I trained at Mountview Theatre School and since then I have studied other forms of acting from Meisner, Michael Chekhov and much more either as an acting coach or actress. I have acted in theatre, film, tv and corporate jobs. As I get older I learn and grow like a good wine. New discoveries in my acting never cease to amaze me. I feel so much gratitude for working in this inspiring profession.

Additional Information

I started 5D Theatre Company in 2006 mainly to promote new plays - www.5dtheatrecompany.co.uk
Plays include - Merrygoround, The Elevator Man and Spreading her thinly.
Dorset Festival, Brighton Festival and for Gallery Theatre.

Valerie Dent - Reviews

Spreading her Thinly

Valerie Dent slipped effortlessly from character to character and back, here brimming with energy and optimism, there darkly critical or utterly exhausted'. (Malcolm E Thomas)

Elevator Man

In this one woman show, company founder, Valerie Dent, totally makes the play her own, to make a night of exciting, innovative theatre; well written, well acted and well worth your attention'.
(Three weeks - Edinburgh Fringe Mag)
