The Riot Act

The Mayhem Company’s most recent play – The Riot Act included 10 students from Central Foundation Boys’ School. The play was devised by company members over a three month period and written by CFBS student Tahmid Chowdhury in Year 12. Tahmid interviewed teachers, students, politicians, police officers and young people to inform the play of reasons, real and imagined, behind the riots on our streets last summer.

The Riot Act was performed at the Royal Festival Hall in the Southbank Centre to packed audiences including many staff and students along with the play write and company Patron Edward Bond who endorsed the play, the company and its young writer.

A fine example of how boys at Central Foundation spend their time and imagination outside of school. Congratulations.
