Last week was an exciting one for Young and Talented and our Artistic Director Suzann McLean. Our very talented BYT Seniors perfomred Under the Hood on Tuesday May 10th, as special guests at NT Connections at Theatre Royal Stratford East. Under The Hood is a hillarious work inspired by the sketches of Jocelyn Jee Esien. The cast were electric and the audience absolutely loved it.

On May 11th and 14th Suzann McLean’s thought provoking and electric direction of Blackout by Davey Anderson, was performed by TRSE Youth Company. Inspired by the true story of a young offender from Glasgow, the quality of the performance was evident. Designed by Lily Knight, Blackout had a strong aethtic and was elegant and effective.

Amazing feedback was given on both productions, and the whole festival, produced by Suzann, was a great success that showcased young voices and talent. Well done to everyone that took part.
