Asked what appealed to her about The Ash Girl, she said, “I love the playwright – I have acted in one of her plays so it was nice to come back and work with her writing again. It’s a challenging text for young people – there is lots of tricky dark material – it’s a play about loss and hope and a lack of hope.”
Since joining Putney earlier this year, Miss Drury has also brought in actress, Emily Berrington, well-known for the series Humans who came in to talk to Years 12 and 13 about her role in Machinal at the Almeida. Students were given the opportunity to join her for a Q&A about the play and the industry in general.
