The Derbyshiretimes.co.uk featured a story about a British schoolgirl who based her prize-winning play on progressive metal band Dream Theater‘s epic song “Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence“. 16-year-old Alice Bell was selected as one of nine semi-finalists for the New Playwrights Festival at the Pomegranate, Chesterfield. The play, entitled Monsters, is about schizophrenia. According to Alice:
I decided to write something that would make me stand out. The play is inspired by one of my favorite songs – Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence by Dream Theater, which is 45 minutes long.
The play will be staged as a rehearsed reading at the Pomegranate on Friday, March 18. Audiences will vote their favorite play through to the final, where the winner will receive a £500 prize.
