Thanks to the continued support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Sherman Theatre’s Introduction to Playwriting course for 15 – 18 year olds has been able to continue throughout the past year. The participants have created brand new plays about real life observations and fantastical adventures. Each of the productions reflect the young person’s lived experiences and the communities they call home. Each short audio play was rehearsed and recorded via Zoom by professional actors and directors.
Directors Nerida Bradley, Francesca Goodridge, Elena Carys Thomas, Dafydd Weeks and Daisy Williams.
Actors Jalisa Andrews, Jude Blake, Tom Blumberg, Non Haf, Savanna Griffiths, Judith Haley, Carli De'La Hughes, Aisha-May Hunte, Gabin Kongolo, Elin Pavli-Hinde, Tristan Slowley, Emmy Stonelake, Oliver Morgan Thomas, and Adam C Webb, a Hijinx actor.
