Wide Horizons- High Achievement:
Stantonbury International School Students have been offered the chance to take part in a free Theatre Workshop run by the Fledgling Theatre Company on 28 May at 5pm. This also includes a free ticket to see their professional performance of Neck or Nothing at our own Stantonbury Theatre later the same day at 7.30pm.
The FREE 1-hour workshop, involving movement, will be run by Fledgling’s Artistic Directors, Christopher Neels and Callum Cameron, and will include looking at how best to use humour when devising theatre that tackles more serious subjects.
It is open to Stantonbury Students aged 14-18 years.
There are only 15 spaces and interested students should email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Places will be offered on a first come-first served basis.
Neck Or Nothing, looks at how toxic masculinity and traditional male stereotypes are passed on generationally and the debilitating effect this can have on men. It has been supported by Arts Council England and will premiere at Pleasance and Greenwich theatres before coming to Stantonbury.
Fledgling Theatre focuses on developing new writing and devised work as an ensemble, they create comedic offbeat plays that explore often ignored subjects in society. Their previous plays have looked at themes of loneliness, homophobic abuse, and grief through the lens of comedy.
