SAFE notes

Jonathan Kaufman 16 May 2019

Had a brilliant session working with some young writers at Lewisham College for our forthcoming SAFE theatre project.

We’re getting young people to tell stories about knife crime and gang culture – with a positive spin! – and we came up with a great story using the ‘Sliding Doors’ device – imagining two storylines flowing from a split-second decision.

Can’t wait to get started with rehearsals next week and bring these young people’s ideas to the stage! It reminds me of why I became a director and producer in the first place, nurturing and encouraging new talent.

Thanks to Collet Hunter of James Ross Hunter Youth Support for collaborating on this amazing event, and to Lewisham Council for a grant to make it possible.
