An Act Of Kindness in Rehearsals

With two weeks to go until the London preview of Helena Westerman’s An Act Of Kindness, below are some rehearsal images of Helena and Robert Hayes rehearsing the show, directed by Caroline Simonsen.

Since it’s first run at The Lion and Unicorn, the An Act of Kindness has developed and grown. The show has been performed to around 100 students in schools across London and the Midlands. Described as ‘warm, relatable and uplifting’ and ‘crackingly funny’, the show is a hopeful depiction of friendship and growing up in London. A show which has been a delight to write, make and share.

An Act of Kindness will preview at Theatre 503 on 21st July at 7pm before it’s run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017.
