Venue: Milton Studio, St Paul’s School
When people at school start forgetting things, Scott wonders if he’s the only one who’s noticed. He and some of the other school misfits seem to be alone in realising what has happened. Is it the weather? Is it a virus? They must join forces to try and work out what is causing everyone in town to lose all sense of who they are. The Blue Electric Wind, performed by a cast of Sixth Form Actors, is a new play about bravery, growing up and why we remember what we do.

Edward Williams’ final production at St Paul’s will be both a chilling warning and an uplifting celebration.
