Heads’ is a production written by, directed by and starring students in Years 11 and 12 of City of London School. Since last July, we’ve been writing and rewriting the script, rehearsing tirelessly and getting ready for our preview performances – all in preparation for the Edinburgh Fringe in August. This is a totally new experience for all of us, and we’re so excited that we’re going to be part of such an amazing Arts Festival!
The play follows Andrew and Cordelia, two high achieving students, who have recently been elected as Head Boy and Head Girl of their affluent public school. While looking for a story with which to enter a prestigious journalism competition, they uncover a student-teacher relationship that they’re sure will get them first prize. Their naivety and incompetence soon becomes obvious, and their ruthlessly aspirational nature begins pushing to the surface.
We really hope all our hard work pays off, and that audiences enjoy the over-the-top characters and cutting satire we feel our play presents.
