Every Thursday evening a group of young actors gather in Wembley Park as part of Kilburn theatre’s project to ‘map Brent’.

The young actors, aged from 14-18, are currently working on a piece provisionally called The Invisible Boy of Brent in the Yellow Pavillion in Engineers Way as part of the programme hosted by the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn High Road.They are one of six new theatre groups which have been created across Brent in Neasden, South Kilburn, Stonebridge, Wembley Park, Harlesden and Kilburn who have been regularly meeting since October.

Five of them are comprised of young people with a sixth all ages.

In the spring they will come together and perform their pieces in a showcase of diverse original work.

They are led by director Tinuke Craig, writer Sonali Bhattacharyya and assistant director Rachel Clarke.

The trio have been introducing the youngsters to different aspects of theatre and performance. So far they have lessons in improvisation, singing and a masterclass in puppetry courtesy of guest teacher War Horse’s Andy Brunskill.

Kwame Owusu, 18, a member of the group, said: “What’s really amazing is we actually get to work with an esteemed director and an established writer to actually create something proper.

“That they are putting this effort into us is really… really… I feel like wonderful is too average a word.”

Ms Bhattacharyya, an established writer of stage, screen and radio plays, said having the time and facilities to create a project like this is rare in youth theatre. She added: “You have someone to properly craft a real script for your group which is really exciting and barely ever happens. It’s amazing, professional actors very rarely get a script written for them.”
