Last Night Development class B of TRBTS performed their short play 'Something to Say'. Developed in just three short two hour sessions, the resulting 20 minute performance was a sincere and moving exploration of what it is like to be a young person navigating our current world. I am so incredibly proud of all the company members - what a talented bunch!
