In the summer of 2016, I directed the Nottingham Playhouse Youth Theatre's take over of the main stage, leading a stage adaptation of Malorie Blackmans hit book, Noughts and Crosses.
This was an amazing opportunity to unleash a huge cast of young people onto the mainstage in an explosive performance.
Director - Nathan Powell
Assistant Directors - Justine Sharpe, Daniel Dore
Designer - Alice Smith
Lighting - Will Wech
Sound - Martin Curtis
"As a fictional piece Noughts & Crosses offers less of a realistic picture of a multi-cultural Britain but does still disturb whilst being brutally explicit about a society in which worth and status are determined by racial status. Nottingham Playhouse Youth Theatre and director Nathan Powell should be very proud of their work in this challenging piece."
