Play in a Week 2017 took place between Monday 24th July – Friday 28th July 2017 and culminated in a sharing of a brand new play on Friday afternoon.
11 young people worked together using the stimulus of fairy tales to create their own new piece of devised theatre. Named ‘The Grimm Trials’ the young people worked in small groups to create scenes based around popular fairy tales, twisting them to make the usual innocent character the baddie. Through workshopping, devising and games the group created a 30 minute long performance, which everyone was involved in.
Parents came to watch the final performance on Friday afternoon, which was a resounding success due to the hard work of all of the young people.
