“Creating a drama about brain tumours”

Thu 25 June 2015


Jersey’s most exciting and talented performance school for young islanders, Drama lab, chose the Jersey Brain Tumour Charity (JBTC) to benefit from their latest production of two one-act plays.

Founded by two professional actors, husband and wife team Pippa and Paul Adams, Drama lab offers over 50 years of experience in the business to help local children gain confidence, self-esteem and make new friends while learning all about the world of the dramatic arts.

Drama lab chose to support the JBTC for personal reasons as Pippa Adams explains:

“We lost a dear friend in the UK a few years ago following a sudden and upsetting brain tumour diagnosis. It took everyone by complete surprise and left a husband and daughter devastated at the size and speed with which the condition appeared. 

“Here in Jersey, we nearly lost another good friend, but fortunately, the tumour was successfully removed and we know the incredible support which was provided by the Jersey Brain Tumour charity and so gratefully received. So this is why we have decided to get behind such a worthwhile, local charity with our children.”

Kevin Pamplin, Jersey Brain Tumour Charity’s business manager said: “This is such great news to have the support from Paul and Pippa plus all the many talented performers at Drama lab. They are passionate and the absolute best at inspiring their children, we can’t wait to see these performances and thank them for their support and help in raising money and awareness for us.”

The two one-act performances by Drama lab students took place at Haute Vallee Theatre on Monday 29th, Tuesday 30th June and Wednesday 1st July 2015.

The collected £113.29 for us over the three nights and we cant thank them enough & look forward to their next productions!
