SYP is a project for Year 6 classes in 8 London primary schools, developing writing skills through workshops, involving professional actors, playwrights and a composer, encouraging children to value playwriting as challenging, stimulating and fun.
After the series of workshops, the pupils are invited to write a short play of their own and submit them to be read by a panel of the Soho Artistic Team. This year we received 134 plays. Some of the best and most representative are then professionally produced at Soho Theatre.
