Four for the Future

Megan Mansfield, Aimee Lloyd, Amelia Smith and Mia WardFour of our students, Megan Mansfield, Aimee Lloyd, Amelia Smith and Mia Ward, have successfully submitted their own plays to The National Theatre’s annual ‘New Views’ competition.

The competition is a programme for 14 -19 year olds across the country to write a 30-minute play, with the winning playwright having the chance to direct their play with a cast of professional actors at the National Theatre in a Play Writing Show Case. Winners are selected in June.

Throughout the year, these students have been studying play-writing, participating in workshops and used up a lot of their own time to write and perfect their plays. St Clere's wants to congratulate these students, with the English Department in particular praising the girls for their resilience and hard work in preparing these pieces.
