Award-winning play performed for local mental health charity

College students and staff were invited to attend performances of Lower Sixth student Keira Grierson’s award-winning play 3-2-1 this week. Keira directed her fellow Performing Arts students at our very own Rispoli Theatre.

3-2-1 focuses on selfie culture and how teenagers navigate the difficulties of social media on a daily basis, often to the detriment of their mental health. Today’s lunchtime performance raised vital funds for local mental health charity Lucy Rayner Foundation.

Emma Rayner, the charity’s Events and Fundraising Manager and a past student of the College said, “Thanks so much for raising funds for our counselling service with young people. When we heard about the performance, we jumped at the chance to come along and see the play for ourselves.”

Keira’s play won the National Theatre’s ‘New Views’ playwriting competition while she was still at school.
