Scene & Heard is an amazing charity that provides playwriting and acting courses for children in Somers Town. A few times a year they hold (free) performances where volunteer professionals – actors, directors, designers – showcase the new writing of the children. If you want to spend a completely joyful night at the theatre I can honestly not recommend it highly enough.
I was one of the directors for the shows “Hitting the Road – The Travelling Plays” – from 21st – 24th March 2013. I directed Chantelle’s brilliant play featuring the characters of a James Bond inspired hamster and a teenage hamburger.
I then directed another play for the shows “Bold Plays – Best Foot Forward” from 28th Nov – 1st Dec 2013. Imad’s inspired and hilarious piece told the story of Greedy George, the Large Poisonous Dart Frog and Deadly Danny, “The Diabetes”.
