British Playwright and YAS MemberCatherine O’ Shea’s newest play CARNIVAL will receive a series work in progress showcase in Edinburgh this August.
“I want to tell her that I had to leave everything behind too. My home, my city.”
This one-woman play, CARNIVAL, follows a multi-generational group of students from across the globe who come together for an adult education class in Central London. The play follows the women from their first day of class to their final celebration. A lot can happen over the course of a year. They share a common struggle overcoming many barriers to their education, but one student must risk everything. An undeniable bond forms between this teacher and student.
