Accrington BL IFC week - 24th August 2015

24th to 28th August

Play in a week with a group of 14 to 16 year olds.

We took everything with us, script, sound system, writer, actor and drama leader and sometime debt specialist.

They didn’t need any of it; from scratch they created, staged and performed to a live audience, their own unique piece of work.

Our thanks to everyone it was a great week!

The remaining audience were taken through a budget exercise designed for new recruits at Catterick Garrison, we deliberately crash the budget to allow us to reinforce key messages.
