Beneath the sun in San Diego, a girl buries a part of her personality to blend in with her society and peers…
Dorothy receives a bag of old belongings which reinforces issues from her youth that she’s suppressed over her adult years. She spends time in her room focussing on them and to her surprise, her Oz-like fantasy World re-emerges before her eyes.
With this childlike experience, comes the long-repressed truth about her state of mind.
Will this fantasy world lead her to the answers she was looking for, or push her back into a darkness she can’t handle?
Script to Performance is a newly formed drama society which is about to produce a newly written play in Walthamstow, East London. The society hope to encourage a creative production process, working on solicited and (on specific occasions), unsolicited scripts. The plays selected, must be associated with themes of mental health/therapy. We are open to people bringing forward solicited plays as long as that script goes through a creative process and storyline/characters relate to a therapeutic/mental health issue. We hope In a Land of Oz is the first of many innovative projects yet to come.
Ticket price: £10 at the door, £8 online.
