10-10-10, Intermission Theatre
As a professional Christian Theatre Company and Youth Theatre, Intermission has been a platform for aspiring actors and actresses since it began, lead by artistic director Darren Raymond, the theatre has provided a stage for many voices and visions.
On July 21, 2011 an exciting showcase was held at St Saviours, home to the theatre which opened its doors to an audience for an evening filled with some of London’s talented artists all performing under one roof! It was an exclusive showcase with each piece written and directed by some well-known faces and many new, upcoming artists.
The showcase included 10 plays each lasting for 10 minutes. It was a night filled with fresh variety, and there was something for everyone. All the plays gave the audience something to relate to; with performances like Black Man Monologues written by Ola Masha (Alumni of Central School of Speech and Drama, Tisch School of the Arts NYU) and directed by Roy Alexander (Co-founder Sketchbook Productions) that got heads nodding to the last performance of the evening; Be Frank-“Peacocks can’t fly far” written by Darren Raymond and Tosin Cole (Intermission Youth Theatre member, lead actor in BBC E20 in association with EastEnders) and directed by Anthonette Isioma (Royal Court’s Young Writers Programme) which had the audience in fits of laughter, buzzing for more.
It was definitely a “showcase for talent and the spiritual growth.”
10-10-10 gets 10 out of 10, from me!
Be sure to visit the Intermission Theatre for their next Youth Theatre performance- The Playground inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream from 3- 26 November 2011.
