20 July–22 July 2017

National Youth Theatre of Great Britain


by Sophie Ellerby

Directed by Anna Niland

Dad’s getting released from prison tomorrow and the air smells like a proper British summer. Tia’s turned sixteen, smashing her GCSEs and gearing up for prom. Rochelle treats her little sister to a new dress from Westfields and even Jaz says she looks beautiful in it and Jaz wouldn’t lie. Music blares in the backyard and the sisters smile together for the first time in a while. This could be the best summer they’ve ever had…

Three sisters fight to keep track of reality as their whole world is shot into pieces.

National Youth Theatre Associate Director Anna Niland (Pigeon English) directs this playful and poignant world premiere by Sophie Ellerby (HighTide First Commissions Writer and NYT REP Company 2013).

THREE is performed by raw young talent from the National Youth Theatre’s Playing Up company.


Playing Up is part of National Youth Theatre’s commitment to social inclusion. This nine-month drama course offers young people the chance to gain a qualification equivalent to two A levels and access further training or employment. Former members of Playing Up include Seraphina Beh (Madison Drake in EastEnders), Gavi Singh Chera (Pygmalion, Headlong) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Mr Selfridge, ITV).
