Blackbird explores the themes of homelessness, family breakdown, adoption and addiction. The play observes the strength and tenacity of the human spirit as it endures a profound sense of loss and belonging and a deep hunger and desire for a better life; the courage to keep faith and hope alive in the face of such adversity. Wisdom, empathy and a sense of the absurd, turn a colourless life into a magical existence, full of unseen wonders and revelatory insights.

Blackbird is a 'Their Future Today' production.  All the money raised from the evening's performance, will go to the charity, whose work in Sri Lanka, raises funds to provide a new life for orphaned and abandoned children; changing their young lives, providing a family, an education and a real sense of purpose and belonging.

The play is written and performed by Helen Blizard. Helen taught at C.H. in the Drama department in 2017.  Before she became a teacher, Helen studied drama, music and the performing arts at The Bristol Old Vic theatre school, followed by a long career as an actress, playwright and screen / scriptwriter for the BBC.

An Enemy of the People

“The majority is never right. Never! Who do you think makes up the majority? Intelligent people or a load of bloody fools?”

Having rejuvenated the fortunes of a crumbling town, eminent doctor Tamsin Stockmann expects to be hailed as its saviour once again when she exposes a major public health risk. But the town’s prosperity hangs in the balance and opposition grows. Will she will lauded as hero of the hour or will Dr. Stockmann be declared an enemy of the people?

Following national tours of their “hugely entertaining” (Daily Info) The Government Inspector and “stonkingly brilliant” (Oxford Playhouse) Don Q, Flintlock Theatre return with a reimagined classic. Employing their signature high-energy storytelling, music and live digital interaction, Flintlock’s irreverent style brings Ibsen’s masterpiece into the 21st century in a searing examination of fake news, whistleblowing and who really wields power in contemporary Britain.

Suitable for ages 11+.

West Side Story

Christ’s Hospital presents this ambitious staging of Bernstein and Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, ‘West Side Story.’

If ever there was a relevant time to perform a piece about the tensions of migrants and nationals living side by side it is today. The ‘PRs’ could easily represent today’s Hispanic population and the response of (some) of the Jets could be a mouthpiece for the ‘Wall-building Trump brigade’ in 2018.

Join the Christ’s Hospital Seniors as they dance, sing, play and act their way through a timeless classic in this collaboration between the Music and Drama departments.

With Choreography from renowned Dancer and Choreographer David Lloyd and the usual energy and commitment from the Christ’s Hospital Seniors, this promises to be a night out to remember.
