Student's script selected for National Theatre playwriting project longlist

SFC1 pupil Ellie's play script, When Time Catches Up, has been selected for the New Views National Theatre Playwriting project longlist for 2018/2019.

This is a fantastic achievement. Typically, 350-450 students participate in the programme nationally and there are usually 30-50 on the longlist.

Selection for the longlist means that Ellie’s script will now be read by a team of National Theatre playwrights and directors.

The shortlist of nine scripts is due to be announced on Monday 20th May. All shortlisted plays are performed as a rehearsed reading on stage at the National Theatre, and the winning play is cast and performed in full.
