Earlier on this term, we were thrilled to announce that Sol and Star in Year 12 had been shortlisted for the prestigious New Views competition at the National Theatre https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/learning/schools/secondary-and-fe/new-views
On Thursday 12 July, we had the pleasure of going to the National to watch rehearsed readings of Sol and Star's plays in the Dorfman Theatre as part of their prize. Performed by professional casts under expert direction from Oscar Toeman and Audrey Sheffield, it was fascinating and fabulous to see the memorable characters created by Sol and Star during our creative writing sessions over this past year brought to life onstage.
What a wonderful celebration of new writing and, as NT Education co-ordinator Jane Ball commented during the readings themselves, what a triumph to have two students from Camden shortlisted!
Well done Sol and Star - we are all very proud of you.
