Special Event!

Bassett Theatre Production - 8th & 9th March 2016 OBHS are once again taking part in the National Theatre Connections Festival. Connections is the National Theatre’s nationwide youth theatre festival. Each year it offers a unique opportunity for youth theatres and school theatre groups to stage new plays written for young people by some of theatre’s most exciting playwrights, and to perform in leading theatres across the UK. This year we are performing Bassett by James Graham. Synopsis: At Wootton Bassett School the supply teacher has done a runner and locked the pupils in their classroom. Dean needs the toilet, Aimee needs a coffee, Amid needs to pray, and Leo… well, Leo really, really wants to escape. Outside, only yards from their confinement, a repatriation of fallen British soldiers is happening along the high street, as it has over a hundred times before through this quiet Wiltshire town. But this one is more personal than most. As factions form and secrets are revealed, maybe Leo is not the only one who'll want to get away. An exhilarating startling snapshot of a generation who have inherited a world at war. Performances: Tuesday 8th March and Wednesday 9th March - 7 pm at Old Buckenham High School. Tuesday 19th April - 3 pm at The Garage, Norwich. Adults £5, Students £2 (Age Restriction 13+)
