How wonderful to see our aspiring playwrights and actors performing. The ...the girl writes Showcase on 7th October was a true reflection of the restorative power of theatre as five L6 students presented their original scripts for the Drama Department's first production of the year.

Following a day of exciting workshops lead by professional playwrights earlier this year, Amy, Diya, Freddi, Lucy and Amara were mentored by professional playwrights throughout the summer to produce their original extracts, one of which will be developed further next year. Miss Wright supervised the project which has been brought to fruition in a very swift time period, as the student-playwrights directed and rehearsed their L6 peers from the start of term. Our Theatre Manager and the IT department enabled the delivery of a seamless live stream of the Showcase to enable a wider audience whilst also recording the event which will be made available internally.

Our L6 writers also produced their own trailers to promote their scripts on the LEH social media channels in advance of the live stream.
