Megaball |National Theatre Learning

Create an extraordinary school play with the National Theatre! I had a blast writing 'Megaball' for the new 'Let's Play' programme for primary schools, which includes music from composer Harry Blake.

'Let’s Play' is an ambitious creative learning programme that can transform creativity and theatre-making in your school. Using a programme of CPDL, specially commissioned plays for children to perform and a suite of learning resources, 'Let’s Play' inspires learning across the curriculum.
