Create, write, and perform your own play in a week about life in the future!
Utopia Now is a research project based at King’s College London. They want to find out more about the kind of society that young people want to live in. They want to know more about the hopes and concerns young people have for the future, and the role health and medicine plays in this future society.
You will work with actors Mathijs Swarte and Gabrielle Quaye’s and researchers at King’s College London to learn about performance and writing skills to have your voice heard on stage.

The workshops will be run by a Peckham based director and filmmaker and an experienced youth theatre practitioner with a view to casting for an upcoming short film. The film ‘Moon Mountain’ will be created in South East London and centres around the story of two young girls, their lively imaginations create worlds of wonder, as they struggle to understand the real world around them.
