A theatre school from Nailsea has donated more than £400 to charity after members wrote and performed their own play.

Talented thespians from theschool of Contemporary Dance and the Performing Arts wrote a play based on one member’s experiences of cystic fibrosis.

The students spoke to Ellie Scott-Brown, aged 17, who suffers from the condition and created monologues about her experiences, dealing with topics including illness, mortality, resilience and empathy.

The play included dance, song and music to express the different stages of the long-term condition.

Ellie, who has been a member of theschool for three years, was ‘honoured’ her friends wanted base the play on her and hoped the show would raise awareness of the condition.

Members of theschool raised £417 for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust which supports people with the illness.
