An outcast at school, where she is bullied viciously for her differences, Carrie is also lost at home, with a fervently religious mother whose love traps her in its maw. When PE teacher Miss Gardner, kind classmate Sue Snell, and boyfriend Tommy Ross reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, Carrie might have a shot at being accepted.

Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off Audition
Our next 14-18 acting production will be Liz Lochhead's Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off. The play is about the bitter rivalry between Mary, Queen of Scots, and her cousin and fellow ruler, Elizabeth I of England. The story is presented in a distinctive cabaret style, with much of the dialogue in the 'Braid Scots' vernacular. It explores the deep sectarian divisions within Scotland and dramatises the fateful moment the country rejected Mary’s Catholicism for the Protestantism of anti-feminist revolutionary John Knox. The auditions will take place on Thursday 23rd August. If you would like to sign up for the audition, time slots are available at the front desk. Audition scripts will be available to collect from the office. For more information call 0141 237 7140 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
