A Scene from ‘Betrayed by my Mind’, a recent production at Dauntsey’s, conceived and directed by a Sixth Form pupil at the School.

The play offered a realistic and gritty insight into teenage mental health.  Based on diaries from young adults, it aimed to challenge misconceptions surrounding mental health and encourage people to talk about the issue.

Rikki Jackson, Director of Drama, Dauntsey’s said:

"It was thought-provoking, challenging, moving, and, above all, heartfelt and left the audience feeling touched and effected by such an honest production.  Congratulations to Charlie for creating this piece of theatre and to the cast and crew for their brilliant three night run.”
