National Theatre Connections - Directors Weekend 2015

National Theatre Connections

We are working with the National Theatre again in 2016 as part of 'Connections' - producing an exciting one act play. 

As part of the process, Artemis Director Niki Robinson, along with Charlotte Sharland and Lauren Hutchings (both in Medusa) and Saad Abudagga (Reading Studios) attended a a fun and very packed prep weekend. Charlie, Lauren and Saad will act as a young producers group, and assist in the direction of the play.

Workshops included a fab 90 mis with the extraordinary and lovely Lyndsey Turner (Hamlet, Tipping the Velvet) who inspired Saad to produce 24 pages of notes on the session!!! 

We begin casting towards the end of the year. 

The show is being co-produced by Artemis Studios and Reading Studios (who are based in Reading College), and we will perform in Reading, and at a large partner theatre in spring 2016. The project is paid for by Artemis and Reading Studio, and FREE for young people aged 15-19 to participate in!
