The National’s platform for new student writing

The National Theatre’s New Views programme seeks to project the voice of young students from the classroom onto the public stage. We are part of this national initiative and share the Bedales Olivier platform with Charter Academy and Tonbridge School on the evenings of 24 and 25 June. This year we will be staging two works from Bedales: Dad by 6.2 Amy Blakelock, scrutinising the imperfect lies of a problematic and broken family, and I’m With You in Rockland, a Ginsberg and Whitman fuelled poetic dissection of Americana by 6.1 student Peter Price. Amy’s play has won a place on the national long-list and Phil King’s None of Us is Very Calm is joint winner of the 2014 award for teacher submissions. For free tickets, please call 01730 711511 or email
