The Spiderwick Chronicles

Stratford Youth Theatre are thrilled to have been granted permission by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black to adapt ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’ for a stage version of these very much loved children’s books.  

It is a huge honour to spend time writing and developing this new script into a world premier play for young people and by young people.

 Over the next few weeks we are so excited to be able to workshop scenes culminating in a play reading if the final script.

Find A Partner

Find A Partner, by Miriam Battye, was performed as part of the annual youth theatre initiative from the National Theatre, Connections 2021, designed to give young people all over the country an experience of theatrical performance and production.

Venue: Open Air at Stratford Racecourse & Digital at The Belgrade, Coventry. 

 

The play is a fascinating story of dating in dystopia - Love Island and Take Me Out meets The Hunger Games - and contestants who fail to find a partner, are taken out, literally. Pop culture references, explorations of social media, self absorption and reality show tampering generate important questions about how we find, and define, love in a modern climate.

By Silva Simerciyan as part of The National Theatre's Connections 2020 Festival.

Venue: Warwick Arts Centre

Set against the backdrop of a group of students performing Arthur Miller’s 

The Crucible,  Witches Can’t Be Burned  explores the changing perceptions of gender, protest and equality, putting Miller’s iconic play, its relevance and its politics on trial.
