'Pigeon's' have landed

The Royal Court Theatre brought their recent production of Pigeons by Suhayla El- to Cardinal Wiseman School on 6th December 2013.

We welcomed The Royal Court Theatre who brought their recent production of Pigeons by Suhayla El- to Cardinal Wiseman School on 6th December 2013. They performed the play in the morning to a group of Year 12 students which was followed by a workshop with members of the company.

After watching the play, Year 12 students were able to take part in a workshop that included not only the actors but the writer and director of the performance. The students were incredible and loved the chance to quiz all the people who had been involved in the play. The feedback from the practitioners was that our students were the best they had worked with! It really was an amazing day.

Pigeons

 "Amir and Ashley are best mates. Ashley spends as much time as possible at Amir’s house losing at chess to Amir’s dad, flirting with his sister and eating his mum’s food. As the pressure and prejudices of the outside world start to invade into their lives, the cracks begin to show. A searing insight into the reality of growing up in an apparently multicultural society." Royal Court School Tours

Playwright Suhayla El-Bushra's credits include scripts for Hollyoaks and Doctors, a feature screenplay and watch out for her play, Cuckoo, which will be produced at the Unicorn Theatre next year.
