Theatre SKAM is ecstatic to welcome Ellery back this year after working with her play Backliners in 2020. In anticipation of this play beginning to come to life with rehearsals this week, we asked Ellery some questions to gain some insight into her writing process.
Congratulations to Nicholas Guerreiro, whose play, End of Term, was chosen as the Youth-Category-Play for SKAMpede by our special Teen Selection Committee! This summer’s SKAMpede audience will see this comedic piece performed by SYC teens.
