BISB High School Student to Join Huntington Theatre Program

March 10, 2016

The subject of bullying is nothing new for most high school students. They see it first hand, or hear about it. Maybe they've even experienced it themselves. Now, a British International School of Boston student will get to do something about it.

  • Annie Rotch

BISB Year 12 student Annie Rotch was accepted this month to a playwriting workshop from Boston's well-known Huntington Theatre.

The program, Not Waiting on the World to Change, began last year and offers students an active role in writing, acting and performing as they work alongside professional playwright, to create an original play. The script will explore anti-bullying themes and use the students' perspectives to shape the plot, characters and script of the play.

Annie is one of several students selected for the program from schools throughout Massachusetts. BISB alumna Cheyanne Hill was involved in this program last year, in its inaugural year.

The program will connect students with the playwright to produce a script that provides an honest look at the issue of bullying, and how to combat it, in today's schools. Students will play an active role in not only providing insight into these issues, but also in the writing of the script itself. Staged readings of the final script will be performed at Huntington Theatre venues in May.

Congratulations to Annie!
