A Port Moody high school will live-stream an award-winning play next week that was penned and directed by one of their own students.
Heritage Woods secondary will premiere Kindling, a one-act show by Grade 12 student Lily Rosen who was named last month as one of three top playwrights in B.C. during the YouthWrite competition that was hosted by the provincial drama teachers’ association.
Her 20-minute play — a story about blame after a fire is set in a school washroom — will be presented along with another short work: Lockdown, co-directed by Grade 11 student Sienna DaSilva-Rolph and alumna Grace Truman, tells the tale of students who are prevented from leaving a classroom, and are left alone by the teacher.
Shanda Walters, Heritage Woods’ drama teacher, said the two plays are part of the online National Theatre Festival.
