Lyrical MC

by Sita Brahmachari
with verbatim texts from Britain’s schools

The diversity in our schools brings with it new sounds, as cultures, dialects and forms of expression mix, merge and collide.

Lyrical MC eavesdrops inside classrooms and corridors, and invites us to tune in to the lyrical ‘chat’ of Britain’s secondary school students. Sita Brahmachari’s poetic new play skilfully fuses verbatim stories, scenes and characters devised by young people, based on their own family stories.  As we are drawn into their private worlds, a revealing subtext of allegiances and rivalries soon emerges.

A co-production with Rewrite
