Stuff by Tom Wells
The Academy Theatre welcomed CAM Theatre Company as they took to the stage to present two previews of the one act play Stuff before it goes to the Quays Theatre in the Lowry as part of the National Theatre Connections Programme in April. The cabaret style seating proved very effective as later in the the play the audience became part of the action!
Directed by Miss Donohoe, the play features a cast of the Academy’s Year 11 and 10 students with the lighting and sound operation performed by a year 8 student.
The plot is as follows:
Vinny’s organising a surprise birthday party for his mate, Anita. It’s not going well: his choice of venue is a bit misguided, Anita’s not keen on leaving the house, and everyone else has their own stuff going on. Maybe a surprise party wasn’t the best idea?
A play about trying (but not really managing) to help.
