Cameron Hutchison (pictured here back row, second right), son of our Associate Paul Hutchison, took part in the National Theatre’s “New Views” Playwriting Competition in 2014, which tasked entrants to write half hour plays.
Cameron’s play, together with two others from his year at Galashiels Academy, all made it onto the ‘long list’ of winners, Delighted with the result, the school Drama Group decided to stage all three plays at the school on one very enjoyable night entitled “The Playlist” in December 2016.
The writers were all tasked with casting and directing their own scripts, learning many valuable management (and possibly some crisis management!) skills along the way. Cameron’s play “World War Skittle” (a light hearted time travel comedy) was a great success (as were all three) and congratulations are due to all involved for showing great creativity, confidence, courage and originality.
