'Pigeons' to land at Cardinal Wiseman

The Royal Court Theatre Company are to perform their play 'Pigeons' at Cardinal Wiseman School

The Royal Court is Britain’s leading national company dedicated to innovative new work from UK and beyond. We are delighted to welcome The Royal Court Theatre who are bringing their recent production of Pigeons by Suhayla El- to Cardinal Wiseman School on 6th December 2013. They will perform the play in the morning to a group of Year 12 students. This will be followed in the afternoon by a workshop with members of the company. The play offers an insight into some of the issues facing young people caught between two cultures and the afternoon workshop will enable the students and company members to continue to explore the themes of the play.


"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.
