Drama Students to Perform at All In The Mind Festival

Visual & Performing Arts

After the success of last year’s performance, Itchen College A-level Drama students will again be performing at the All In The Mind Festival.

The annual festival held in Basingstoke looks to raise the conversation about mental health through performing arts and invites contributions from musicians, dancers, theatre acts and more.

This year’s festival is being held at Eastrop Park on Saturday 23rd June in the heart of Basingstoke town centre.

Itchen students will be performing their new play ‘Alexithymia’ which focuses on the subject of teen suicide and aims to raise awareness of what is one of the biggest killers of young people today in the UK.

Last year, Itchen students performed their play ‘Man Up’ which focused on raising awareness of male depression and suicide. A shorter version of ‘Man Up’ later went on to win the Take The Stage talent show at Solent University.
