A scratch performance.
“We’re just thoughts, feelings, ideas, questions – all crammed into school uniforms that don’t quite fit”
It’s the last day of school, and Joe is buzzing. Standing on the cusp of adulthood, is he ready to grow up, or is everything falling apart around him?
School Uniforms is a brand new one-man play that explores teenage identity, burgeoning sexuality, friendship, romance, and cows. When Liam Hardy (fittest lad in the world) invites Joe to the science block toilets, everything changes.
A brand new piece of theatre from two alumni of the Stephen Joseph Youth Theatre, generations apart: Nadia Emam and Christopher Dean. Since Nadia was asked to mentor Chris on his final college project, they have become a creative duo, and have been developing the play at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre.
Originally developed as part of the level 3 extended diploma in Performing Arts at Scarborough TEC.
Christopher Dean is an actor and writer from Bridlington who has performed in numerous productions with the Stephen Joseph Youth Theatre such as Junkyard, Game Over and All Delighted People, as well as Granny’s Exploding Toilet for the SJT in 2019. He will be starting his professional training on the BA (Hons) Acting course at Rose Bruford College this October.
Nadia Emam is a director, actor and poet from Scarborough where she is now a supported artist of the Crucible in Sheffield. She trained as a director with Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme and is an associate artist of the National Student Drama Festival and MENA Arts UK. Her recent short film, There Are Lights, was awarded funding by BFI NETWORK and featured supported artists from some of the SJT’s OutReach groups.
