School Ties

EEA produced with the Lewisham Youth Theatre, EEA the first Platform 11+ project in London. 30 young people from several secondary schools took up residence in a Primary School for one week - to create a wierd and wonderful environment to perform their work with our playwright Arji Manuelpillai.

Come with us as we journey into the deep, dark, dusty corridors of your memory. Inhale the stale stench of floor polish, click open your Barbie lunchbox, tuck in that shirt and straighten your tie! For a night young people will be setting the rules: creating the school of our dreams, or maybe your nightmares. This is school as you have never seen it before.
