YFA Creative Pathways
Writing Pathway, Peripheral Vision
Tara joined the YFA in September 2012, and as a keen writer, artist and drama enthusiast, couldn’t wait to hone her skills in these realms and develop new ones too.
Tara has had roles in several school productions, from the main part in her house’s entry in the Inter-House Drama competition to Claudio in Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, but is equally comfortable working offstage as a writer, director or designer.
Tara has found her time as a Young Friend highly enjoyable, and the advice she has been given in order to adapt and improve her work has been invaluable.
Peripheral Vision, the curtain-raiser for CommonWealth, will be Tara’s first play to be performed on a stage.
