Details

Join Human Story Theatre for Scenes From… three new plays about young people’s mental health.

Human Story Theatre are an Oxfordshire based company who only produce new writing with a health or social care issue at heart. HST are delighted to unearth the local talent of Brookes University Creative Writing and Drama students who will perform scenes alongside professional actors. Think Human Festival is delighted to host this platform for two local playwrights, (Nick O’Dwyer and Gaye Poole writer of Connie’s Colander, Flat 73 and DRY for Human Story Theatre), and to showcase new writing from Brookes' own students inspired by their work with Helen Mosby (Writing for Performance Tutor), Tristan Pate (Artistic Director for Oxfordshire based Cherwell Theatre Company) and representatives from organisations that work with young people with mental health issues.

The performance will be followed by a Q&A session with members of local mental health support services.
