New drama campaign: #IfIWere
Ever imagined yourself at the centre of your favourite drama?
This autumn term, we’re launching #IfIWere – a social media campaign to turn the table on well-loved plays and performances.
From the classic to the contemporary, we are inviting pupils, teachers and representatives from the education and theatre world to reimagine the story, characters and outcomes of their favourite drama texts, plays or performances from their perspective.
