Published on Wed 11 Jul 2018

Shine, a series of monologues written by students from Eltham Hill School have been performed at the Royal Court Theatre and are available now to watch online.

The monologues, written by girls from Eltham Hill School, were developed through a 10 week project lead by Young Court where students worked with playwrights Somalia Seaton, Zella Compton, Matilda Ibini and Emma Dennis-Edwards to learn about writing for theatre.

On 6 July 2018 the students had their monologues performed by professional actors at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs. Fifteen of the monologues were also made into short films directed by Royal Court Associate Director Lucy Morrison. These were screened on 6 July 2018 at a pop-up theatre on Kings Road.
