      Waiting for Mum Year 7/8/9 workshop production

      This year, Year 7, 8 & 9 students have been invited to take part in an exciting initiative - a Workshop Devised Production called Waiting for Mum, based around the character of 14 year old Nora who, on the day the play takes place, has her Mum taken away by an alien spaceship; today, at precisely 7 pm, is when she is going to be brought back down to Earth.

      Waiting for Mum is a devised creative adaptation of Tom Wells short play Spacewang. This piece will weave in extracts of Wells text, along with Phaos ensemble-focused and movement-driven direction and some exciting new writing from the cast. Arrive ready to be taken on a thrilling and sometimes dangerous journey as one girl carries out her quest to be reunited with Mum. The production will be directed by Phao Wheatley. Phao, is a Bold girl of Burgess Hill Girls who attended RADA after leaving us from the 6th form in 2013, she has worked alongside many directors and practitioners in projects such as the National Youth Theatres 60th Anniversary Showcase Gala at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London and now works for the National Youth Theatre themselves. She also directed the astonishing production of Snapped here in 2016, followed by Tales from Europe in 2017 and Missing last year.

      This production will have been put together in the space of 4 days, with a cast of approximately 20 students working together to perform a wonderful piece of ensemble storytelling and physical theatre. We are sure it will be a very impressive and entertaining evening.
