As exam’s are put on hold for our drama students, Joe Plumb uses his own A Level Drama memories as a starting point for a trip through the plays that have shaped his theatrical life on the Isle of Wight.
Sometimes, there’s a play that causes a writer’s block for all the right reasons. ‘Fresh Start’ was one such play, posing question after question and leaving the audience to answer them.
At a time when the Island is getting ready to welcome the second IW Pride event, yet society in general is still grappling with the idea that not everyone fits into neatly defined gender brackets, this play is relevant and needed. At least one audience member last night said that she had personally learnt a lot from it.
