Bite-sized original plays to be staged by city’s young performers

CREATIVE: The Court Youth Company members Abbi Thomas, Craig Pope and Paris Thorner will perform in the company's end of year show Trios.

Short sharp original plays created by some of the city’s emerging performers will be showcased this week.

The Court Youth Company will present a variety of short plays for their end-of-year performance, Trios.

For the past two months, the company has been working with directors Holly Chappell-Eason and Tom Eason who have been guiding them on how to create their own work.

The young performers were asked to write down key words about what they want to do on stage.

Court Theatre promotions manager Jeff Clark said it valuable in helping the young artists uncover their own performance skills.

Trios has provided many of the company’s members with their first chance to create original pieces.

Trios runs at the Gloucester Room, Isaac Theatre Royal, until Saturday. To book tickets, go to
