A wonderful group of girls from Highbury Fields School came along to the launch of Little Miracles at Imperial College London's Outreach Lab.
Their teacher, Devinda Guram, sent us this message:
Thank you for inviting our girls to Imperial College. They had a wondeful time and enjoyed the experience of visiting a real laboratory and watching the play. On the tube back home they talked non-stop about the issues arising from the play and these discussions will continue in their biology lesson. Meeting and talking with Lord Robert Winston was also a great highlight for them as well as the periodic table lockers outside the lab!!
Little Miracles, Joy Wilkinson's new play about young carers, dementia and stem cell research, launches today with a preview performance at St Mary Magdalene Academy and a special launch night show at Imperial College London.
The show, directed by Natalie Ibu, tells the story of Ayesha - whose mum is diagnosed with early onset dementia. Determined to save her, Ayesha embarks on a mission to save her, sacrficing the best years of her life in a desperate bid to find a cure.
The show will tour schools and science labs in Islington and UK-wide from Wednesday.
