Kilgraston pupils earn place on National Theatre Connections programme

LONDON’S NATIONAL THEATRE CHOOSES KILGRASTON AS ITS ONLY PERTHSHIRE CONNECTION


Third-year pupils from Kilgraston’s School have been chosen to participate in the prestigious National Theatre Connections Project.

Earning a place on the programme of the London-based theatre, offers pupils the opportunity to perform in front of a paying audience at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre during March 2020, under the tutelage of Directors from the National Theatre.

Additionally, performers have the added possibility of being subsequently shortlisted to perform their production at the capital’s National Theatre later in the year.

“This is an incredible opportunity for the girls,” said Hannah Murphy, Head of Drama at Kilgraston, “it’s not just about acting, although, of course, that is a huge part, but also gaining experience in every aspect of theatre production – from lighting, casting, set-design, wardrobe and make-up – under such expert guidance.”

Each year The National Theatre commissions ten new plays and invites drama groups from throughout the UK to apply for a place on the scheme for over 6,000 young people. The project brings together some of the UK’s most exciting theatre-makers of tomorrow.

“It’s going to be a huge amount of work,” said Murphy, “but to have guidance from some of the best directors in the country could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I think I may be as excited as the girls!”

Kilgraston will be performing ‘The It’, by acclaimed playwright, Vivienne Franzmann, which explores teenage mental health through dark comedy. Franzmann’s first play, ‘Mogadishu’, was critically acclaimed at its première at the Royal Exchange, Manchester] and, on its subsequent transfer to London’s Lyric Theatre, it was named the “play of the year” by the Daily Telegraph.
