Year 6 Southwark Playhouse Play Write Project

A selection of the Year 6 students are working on an ambitious project alongside our friends from the nearby Southwark Playhouse. The aim is for the class members to write a short script that will then be performed by the professional actors.

This is a project that the pupils have been developing all term. The only requirement for each script is that it contains four characters and lasts for two minutes. Some very different and original pieces of work have been created by the students.

The pupils are currently making the final edits of their scripts. We will then type them up and present them to the Southwark Playhouse actors ahead of the Easter break.

The final part of this project will involve a special performance at Southwark Playhouse. All the Year 6 scripts will be performed on stage by the professional actors. The Year 6 students will be sitting in the audience to enjoy watching their own work.

You can watch some work in progress short videos from some of the Year 6 scripts below.
