We are super excited to have cast for our new piece of theatre SCAR.
SCAR is set outside a fictional A+E. Four young people take a break in the fresh air outside A&E. Time ticks on as they wait for news of their best friends. Days turns to night and night to day as they try to come to terms with the repercussions of accidents and emergencies.
Harriet Ditmore, Charlie Tantum, Henry Mendoza and Hayley Konadu join Bounce to bring the piece to life. The play tackles how we deal with our physical and mental health. Scar has been written by Louise Pendry with Anstee Bridge Students. Cementing a year of learning around the NHS, students worked with Louise as dramaturgs on the script. Using a loosely written script, the students advised on language, discussed their own NHS experiences and applied some of their learning to making the work.
It will now be bought to life in a schools tour and end at the National Archive on the eve of the 71st birthday of the NHS.
