After seven weeks working together, the feeling in the Bristol New Voices camp this week was one of excitement and expectation: we got to read through our new scripts – written by our playwright, Adam Peck – and give life to all the wonderful ideas that our team of mentors and young people had come up with over the last few weeks. Very quickly, a buzz of excitement could be felt in the room as everyone was busy getting down to the (serious!) business of creating some really exciting scenes, characters and…theatre!
It is testament to everyone on this project that our Wednesday afternoon sessions in Lawrence Hill are so full of energy, enthusiasm and great creativity. With a few more weeks to go now before our sharing event at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatres on Sunday March 20th, I cannot wait to see the work we have all put in continue to develop and grow into something wonderful for everyone to come and watch. This week marked the start of work on the scripts; now onto more rehearsing, more discovering and the opportunity to really bring those scripts to life!
