The Festival of Youth 2007, featured three productions from the junior and intermediate groups of South London Youth Theatre.

Green Inc.

By Simon Holland

Directed by Angela Barnes and Simon Holland


It’s a cold night in the city. Taps drip, dogs bark, warm air escapes through windows, litter rolls along like tumbleweed, television sets play to empty rooms and Christmas lights twinkle in the shopping centre. Below these streets, a gang of children listen, watch and wait to hit back against these blots on the urban landscape. Their mission: to right the wrongs of wasted energy and channel it towards a cleaner, fluffier, greener world. They are bold, unconventional and sometimes downright silly but the future of the planet is in their hands.

Rain On Me

By Mark Rees

Directed by Victoria Waddington


This award-winning drama for teenagers is a modern Romeo & Juliet with overtones of West Side Story and Roxanne. While the drama is serious in parts, it is hugely entertaining and contains realistic and sometimes hilarious dialogue, which has much to appeal to teenage and adult audiences alike.


Members of the Intermediate group

Danish Bacon

By Stuart Draper

Directed by Carly Binger and Stuart Draper


There is something rotten in the state of Denmark. King Cloudyeye has murdered his brother and married his wife, Dirtrude. His nephew, Omelette, is not impressed. With errant ghosts, a troupe of amateur dramaticals and a skull with a unique line in comedy patter, all is set for an evening of fantastical, frenetic vacuum-packed fun.
