Play For September and League of St George
Pleasance Theatre, Islington
25th – 29th September
Play For September
Produced by Lost Watch Theatre Company
Based on the writer’s own experience of abuse and grooming at school, this poignant and surprisingly funny play is a three hander about loyalties, friendship and not knowing where to turn. After the recent press uproar over teacher/pupil relationships Play for September offers an authentic insight into the dangers and vulnerabilities of youth.
Set in a Yorkshire comprehensive in September 2003 at the start of a new term, Elle and Kay waste time after school. But when wasting time leads to your teacher falling in love with you, they quickly discover how morals are not always clear cut, friendships are flimsy and loyalties can be as false as the man they call Sir.
League of St George
Produced by Bricks and Mortar Theatre
Deadend Dagenham 1976. Skinhead Adam lives a life of comradeship, excitement and power through the fascist brotherhood of the League of St George. However, he has a secret set to destroy everything. He is gay. Social and sexual identities collide violently in an equally violent world. All that’s left to ask Skin, Head or Heart? A loud live punk band throws you into the days of boots, braces and the moonstomp. With sensitive humour, a twisted love story and an oversized St George’s flag, Brick and Mortar Theatre bring you the League of St George.
The play won the King’s Head Stella Wilkie Award 2013 for new writing. Bricks and Mortar Theatre take inspiration from family anecdotes and social history and make tough topics charmingly engaging with their everyman voice, welcoming you to take another look at this murky subculture.
See both Play For September and League of St George for £10 (usually £15) when quoting NSDF13 in person or over the phone.
