Beginnings rehearsal photos online

We've posted some great photos of the second rehearsal of our Beginnings Project - five brand new plays by five amazing playwrights.

It's very rare for young performers to get the chance to work on plays that they've been involved in from the very start of their development and we're lucky to have five really bright and brilliant emerging directors working with them: Kwaku Boateng (above), Tuan Ly, Emily Lim, Ola Ince and Alex Brown.

We'll be introducing the plays, and the directors, over the next few weeks.  But in the meantime, here's a taste of what's been going on in rehearsal.

Wonderful feedback for Little Miracles

Little Miracles is coming to the end of the Worcester leg of its tour, where it has been resident at the University of Worcester for the week.

The show has been seen by over 500 young people (as well as some adult audiences) in Worcester and has had some rave reviews, including this lovely message from John Newbury, Chair of the Biochemical Society's Education Committee and Head of the Institute of Science and the Environment at the University.

I just watched Little Miracles here in Worcester. I was completely blown away. I think it is superb. I spoke to the actors afterwards to pass on my congratulations and have a chat. They said that they had a slightly different approach with the adult audience I was in. They did not hold back on the emotional stuff. I’m glad they said that because I was almost in tears at a couple of points. Anyway, I think it is a triumph. The feedback from the schools is very good too and this will be passed on to you.

The show continues its tour through London and the South East next week.

Little Miracles returns

We're delighted to announce that Little Miracles will go back on tour in June with a brand new cast.

Lorna Gayle (Sugar Mummies at the Royal Court; The Crucible at the RSC) will play Dina while Sheri-An Davis (In the Red and Brown Water at the Young Vic; Mad Blud at Theatre Royal Stratford East) will play her daughter Ayesha.

Natalie Ibu returns to direct Joy Wilkinson's play, which originally toured locally and nationwide in February and March. 

The play will be performed at the University of Worcester and in London, including gala performances at the Biochemical Society's Charles Darwin House.

Little Miracles was originally conceived through a series of workshops co-hosted by the Biochemical Society in which young people and scientists worked with four playwrights to develop an idea linking young carers with stem cell research.  It was developed with the help of Islington Young Carers.
