Brockley Jack's Cultural Olympiad - free tickets for 16-25s

The Brockley Jack Theatre's Darren Batten writes:

The Brockley Jack Studio are pleased to announce that they are offering a limited amount of free tickets to young people aged 16-25 who live/work or study in the borough of Lewisham.

The initiative is part of their new writing festival Write Now 3, made possible with the help of Lewisham Council (part of the Council's Cultural Olympiad offer) and young people are invited to see three new plays over the next three weeks.

The plays are:

Emoticon by Melissa Bubnic (April 10-14 at 7.45pm, April 14 also at 4pm) The story of how four very unique teenagers communicate in their search for love.

Skinhead by Jessica Brown (April 17-21 at 7.45pm, April 21 also at 4pm) A moving family drama with a shocking twist.

Borderland by Carol Vine (April 24-28 at 7.45pm, April 28 also at 4pm) A compelling drama of a future society in chaos. (please note this play is only suitable for over 18's)

All we ask is that after each performance you tell us briefly what you thought about the play, you can choose to do this via Twitter or Facebook Tickets are subject to availability, and will operate on a first come first served basis.

Please email Darren: with your name, age and which play(s) you would like to see on which date. Tickets will be confirmed by email and collected on the night at the theatre. If you are under 18 you will need to be accompanied by someone over 18. More info on the plays can be found at

Best of luck with that one.

Regular theatre is often hit and miss.

My experience of youth theatre is that it is often a cruel and unusual punishment for the audience.

Have any of those involved any sort of track record or theatrical experience that informs their work?

I find reading the article helps before pouring anonymous bile over a suggestion.

Hello Anonymous

Just to clarify, the plays we are offering free tickets to are written by emerging local playwrights with professional credits, performed by professional actors and directed and designed by experienced industry practitioners.

The free tickets we are offering are for under 25's

The Jack Studio Theatre has been producing and programming professional theatre since 1993, we regularly receive excellent press reviews and nominations for theatre awards.

Throughout the year, we also welcome local youth groups to use the theatre, which is of a high standard and supported by the local community.

Please come and visit us sometime!
