Drama, Baby by Strode’s College

by Jamie Brittain
Sold out
Part of NT Connections
It’s the final rehearsals before the practical A Level theatre studies exam, and Neil wants everything to be just perfect.
Two competing groups of students attempt to achieve that ever elusive ‘A’ grade, soon finding the competing forces of sex, alcohol and Artaud threatening to destroy their hopes of a good university place. As egos clash and new relationships are formed and broken, Drama, Baby goes to the heart of what it means to perform, and what it’s like when the handbags and gladrags are stripped away.

Jamie Brittain was born in Edinburgh in 1985 and grew up mostly in the Lake District and Bristol. He created the teen drama series Skins, which he wrote for throughout its 7 year run, picking up a BAFTA along the way, and has since written for the Channel 4 show Dates. Drama, Baby is his first piece of theatre.

There must be magic in the atmosphere By Benedict Lombe

Benedict Lombe from our Emerging Writers Group writes about diasporic experience. It’s 3am. I’m sitting in my room wolfing down a pack of Doritos and thinking about the night I just had. I’m also thinking – quite intensely – about who decided we needed more than one flavour of Doritos? Bro, you hit the jackpot…

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…
