The students involved in the SHINE project had their plays put on stage at The Royal Court Theatre. All year, our students have been attending writing workshops with female playwrights and professionals from the Royal Court. The writers directed their plays and our actors were outstanding. We had a great audience and they responded with a massive round of applause for our talented young women. I would like to thank Jo Whittington, Romana Flello, Maia Clarke and Ellie Fulcher with their support with the project. We have just won £17,000 to run the project again next year – watch this space!
