Theatre Centre 60th Birthday Tour

On the afternoon of Monday 21st October Year 9 were treated to a performance of "Advice for the Young at Heart", a play by Roy Williams by the London-based Theatre Centre:

"It’s 2011 and 1958: London is rioting. Candice is ordered by her gang-leading boyfriend to lure Clint into a honeytrap. Haunted by her grandfather’s mistakes, she stands at a crossroads. Will she do as she’s told, or will she learn to be true to herself before history repeats itself?

A modern tale for riotous times, commissioned and developed by Theatre Centre, Advice for the Young at Heart is a new play by Sucker Punch playwright Roy Williams. The play examines the unrest of summer 2011 against the backdrop of the 1958 race riots in Notting Hill, exploring themes of race, family and misguided loyalty"
