Our friends over at Mental Health charity Sane have put us in touch with the Full Flight Theatre Company. They're looking for young people to come and form part of a focus group for their new play 'Correspondence'.

They need people on Friday 21st June from 3-5pm in Clapham - 10 mins on the train from London Waterloo.
Were looking for people who are:
    Aged 13 ? 25, preferably with some experience (either personal or second-hand) of bipolar disorder. Or, from Syria.
    Comfortable being part of a focus group, listening to 'Correspondence' and offering your thoughts and opinions on the depiction of bipolar and how the young people come across in the play.

If you are interested we can offer:
    An insight into the way new plays are developed with actors, a director, writer and producer
    An exclusive hearing of a brand new play!
    Your ideas and feedback being listened to, with the possibility of it shaping Correspondence.

Why we need you:
Just a few hours of your time would really strengthen the depiction of bipolar and young people in this play and bring home the reality of this issue to audiences.

About the play and full flight theatre:
Correspondence is about 15 year old Ben who is troubled by news emerging from Syria. Compelled to act he travels there to document atrocities ? when he arrives he realises the battle he is really fighting is for his own sanity.

As a new company, Full Flight is being supported by Paines Plough (the national home of new plays), National Theatre's Studio and the Old Vic Theatre's talent development team New Voices to develop the play.

If you would like to be involved please contact Producer Robyn Keynes on robynkeynes@gmail.com to confirm your attendance or to find out more, including directions to the rehearsal space.

You'll need to let them know by Friday 7th June :)
