Drama Queens

If you’re in need of a bit of ‘Me Time’ and a safe place to explore your creativity and wellbeing…

…you will LOVE Drama Queens!

Mixing up fun drama exercises with play-making and great discussions, we can promise you’ll find it playful, enriching and a great way to open yourself up to new ideas and to grow in confidence.

The Play’s The Thing…

Last term, we chose the subject for our performance and used the documentary technique of Verbatim Theatre to start to shape a play.

This term, we’ll be continuing that process to devise an original piece of performance theatre based on the local story of the Jigsaw Killer – Buck Ruxton – explored through the lens of the psychology of contemporary domestic abuse.

As always, our sessions will be fun, playful, energetic – and a great way to flex our creative muscles!

What is Verbatim Theatre?

Verbatim Theatre is a form of documentary theatre in which the real words of interviewees are used to create the script of the play. It investigates a particular event or topic, often with a political or social edge.

I absolutely LOVE Drama Queens because it is a great place to go to explore myself and grow in confidence whilst having lots of fun with great woman I respect and admire.
