Interval and Interlude
A weekly drama group for young people to take time out, to connect, and to play.
in . ter . val noun
1. A break, a pause, a rest
2. The space between two points
In theatre, an interlude is a moment of distraction, a break from the norm, literally ‘playing in between’.
If you’d like some time each week to clear your head, use your imagination, and explore your world, Interlude or Interval could be for you. Each session will be playful, creative, and different, using all the fun of drama with none of the pressure…

We look forward to meeting you soon!
