Challenging production for school’s pupils
Students at a north-east Derbyshire school will perform a heart-tugging production about a girl facing emotional and psychological difficulties.
The play, entitled Find Me, will be staged at Dronfield’s Henry Fanshawe School next week and involves sixth form and GCSE drama and performing arts students
This challenging play tells the story of a girl, Verity Taylor, whose behaviour was misinterpreted and mismanaged. The story explores her family’s struggle to find support and cope with Verity’s behaviour and follows her journey from childhood to her incarceration in Broadmoor hospital while still in her early twenties.
Four students - Ellie Cook, Lilly Ford, Lucy Pratt and Rachael Luscombe - play Verity at different stages from her childhood and young adulthood.
Performances are tonight (Tuesday), tomorrow and Friday, February 5, at 7.30pm in the school’s Fanshawe Hall.
Find Me was written by Olwen Wymark in the 70s.
