Over the last couple of months I've written a short play, Beth, for my NIDA Drama Studio students (I head up the Drama Studio, a one year course of Sundays for 15-17 year olds). With a class of 1 male and 7 females I decided to set the play in an all girls school, with our only male playing the teachers and parents of the female students. The play deals with bullying and the ramifications that result. I was horrified by the true stories I found when researching the piece so decided I wouldn't hold back - it has ended up quite dark. I'm directing the production which will perform on Sunday 13th December in NIDA's Parade Studio.
