So back in the summer, we ran a 3-day drama project in Croydon, which focussed on writing and devising new work. All of the creative work, pieces, and monologues were amazing, and it was clear that some of the group wanted to take their work further. Croydons Youth Arts Collective takeover provides an amazing opportunity for young people across Croydon to share their art. So this is what one of the groups is doing. They have been working with us at Stanley Halls rehearsing over the last 2 weeks to develop their piece and it’s now ready for you! Anyone can come to the day time element of the event, and there is an after-party just for young people afterward.
What you need to know
The piece is called ‘Trapped’ is on at 16:30 in the Talawa Studio (ignore stuff saying it’s in the community cube that has changed). The event is free and we would love to see you there.
Trapped is a playful and powerful piece of both devised and scripted theatre exploring race and power in education.
