Level Up Workshop

Sold out

This is the place you grew up in, the place you want to grow out of. Get the coins. Beat the boss. Level Up.

We are seeking fifteen young people aged 18 – 25 to perform in a community ensemble alongside actor-writer Malachi Kirby (Black Mirror, Roots) in his debut play, Level Up.

  •         Level 1: Workshop day – Dec 14th

Come along to our workshop day where you will take part in fun and creative activities lead by Lynette Linton and Daniel Bailey – co-directors of Level Up. Fifteen participants will then be chosen to perform in the ensemble.

If you are chosen to perform in the ensemble you will need to be available for the following:

  •         Level 2: Research & Development Session – February 2020 (specific date tbc)

The ensemble will work with Malachi over one day to develop the play.  

  •         Level 3: Rehearsals from 30 March – 30 April 2020. Performances from 1 May – 6 June 2020. (specific dates tbc)

The ensemble will rehearse and perform alongside Malachi in Level Up at the Bush Theatre in May 2020. Each ensemble member will perform 3 times per week.
