An Aylesbury student has said that performing seven different plays on seven days for a drama festival was ‘challenging’ but that ‘it went well.’

Joe Myers, 17, took part in Seven on Seven, run by the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.

During the course of the festival, each student has one show where they play the main role.

In Joe’s case, it was The City by Martin Crimp, which features a cast of three.

The play is centred around the characters Chris and Clair, a suburban married couple, however when they try and communicate, the stories they tell each other seem to implode and are always left incomplete.

Joe, who played Chris in the show, said: “I felt the plays went very well.

“I was a bit nervous before the performance but happy afterwards.

“We had a question and answer session after to get an idea of how we found it.”

Joe has one more year to study at Tring Park and after that hopes to get a place at an acting school and eventually with the National Youth Theatre.

He added: “I spent a lot of time rehearsing and although I mostly rehearsed on my own I had support from my family and friends and they came to watch.”
