  • BOA Year 13 Acting: Market Boy

    18 April 2024 All Day

    It’s 1985! Romford Market is a bustling, chaotic and eclectic slice of Essex life. The market is teeming with wheelers, dealers, blaggers and chancers trying to sell their wares and make a few bob, in a Thatcherite England that celebrates capitalism.

    We follow the story of 13-year-old, Boy, as he navigates his turbulent teenage years learning everything about the world, and women, from Trader and the other shoe-stall lads, amidst a huge host of other characters who inhabit the market day to day. This talented cast play over 40 different characters with energy, commitment and stamina. It's a play like no other! Prepare yourself as we step back in time and follow Market Boy in this wild coming-of-age tale.

     

    Show length: 2 hours and 20 minutes (including interval)
    Please be advised this play has an age rating of 14+ due to adult themes, language and content.

  • BOA Year 13 Acting: 13

    23 April 2024 All Day

    13, is a fast-paced rollercoaster of a play propelling you through the early 2000's in true London style.

    Written in 2011, it is as relevant today as it was then and continues to reflect our ever terrifying and ever evolving political world. However, this is not just a play about politics, it's about humans, our flaws and foibles, our ability to exploit power and the fragility of life itself.

  • RedMind Productions: The Other Minds

    10 May 2024 7:00pm – 7:50pm

    The Other Minds is a psychological-horror stage production that features three characters, exploring their different relationships, complex personality traits, and individual mentalities. We follow three troubled girls: Jane, Hannah, and Daisy, getting a glimpse of their life at an eerie psychiatric hospital, watching as the series of events presents a better understanding of each character; their past, and their minds.

    However, as the plot unravels, it becomes apparent these characters are much more connected than they originally thought. Maybe they could even be connected to you?

    Performed by Year 13 students from BOA Stage & Screen Production Academy.
