T’riffic Thamesmead

A new play by writer Catherine O’Shea commissioned by Trust Thamesmead to go alongside the T’riffic Thamesmead education project. This play has been developed with 80 schoolchildren from three schools in Thamesmead and will be performed by them. This project celebrates the history of the Thamesmead area and the modern development.

The play follows three young people from Thamesmead on a time travelling adventure which spans the Romans, Normans, Victorians and the First World War. They meet the first Thamesmead residents in the sixties and seventies and explore the area when it was still a building site.
