Young actor returns home to South Shields to star in one-man play
Published: 7th November 2017
The show tells a story of pride, friendship and being a gay teenager in Hull. It was created with and for young people in Hull through the Script Club project, in which a playwright works in their local community to write a new play.
Andrew, who remains involved in the Customs House Youth Theatre as assistant director, also trained at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle as part of its Project A scheme. His theatre credits include The Fifteen Streets (The Customs House), Scrapbook (Live Theatre, Newcastle) and Broken Biscuits (Live Theatre/Paines Plough and UK tour).
Fiona Martin, Learning and Participation Manager and Youth Theatre Group Leader at The Customs House said: “We are really proud of Andrew and delighted to have seen Drip in his home theatre. He’s very talented and I’m sure this will be the start of an excellent career.”
Drip is produced in partnership with Boundless Theatre and funded by Hull City Council, Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and Arts Council England.
