The tradition is that the summer school will start looking at the play that will be performed by the Young Co. during the autumn - this year this will be Reflections on the River - written by members of Young Co. with mentoring from professional playwright Peter Arnott. It's also a really good chance for current members to get back together, have a laugh and welcome any new members.
This year the itinerary seems more packed and varied with a host of sessions including:
- The Voice and Song with vocalist Sally Clay (They Shoot Horses/Liar)
- Text and The Actor with Keith Macpherson (Yellow Moon/Waiting for Godot)
- Stage fighting with Carter Ferguson (fight director) and Paddy Cuneen (writer/director)
- A private performance of Blackout by Davey Anderson (Liar/Snuff)
So, as Young Co. commence the festivities upstairs, I shall try not to be too jealous. If you like the sound of this and want more info about Young Co., you can email Neil here.
