Our first stage of Chicken Shop has been completed following a rehearsed reading of the four new plays by Omar El-Khairy, Somalia Seaton, Ed Harris and Joseph Coelho infront of an audience of more than 40 people yesterday evening.
Fourteen young people spent two days getting to know and rehearse the first drafts, working with four trainee directors.
The four new plays went down a treat and will now be developed into second drafts for our production of Chicken Shop at Platform in July.
Absolutely blown away by @ictheatre last night. What professional, competent, authentic, unique and hilarious young people. A real privilege— Ojaih Willow-Edwards (@serentioustheo) May 30, 2014
Our play Brainstorm was mentioned in this talk by Jay Giedd, one of the world's leading experts on adolescent neuroscience (see from 1 minute in).
Brainstorm is currently in development ahead of a London run in 2015.
