Baby P Case Provokes Backlash Theatre???
This year’s artists, including playwright Nicholas Wright (Vincent in Brixton), met yesterday and selected the story about Baby P - the toddler whose systematic abuse and death at the hands of his mother and her boyfriend has sparked an investigation into child protection services – as their starting point. The resulting play will premiere at Southwark Playhouse this Sunday 23 November at 8pm. In the meantime, theatregoers can track the creative process on the Present : Tense blog at www.nabokov-online.com/ptblog.
