review of our july youth group show

By Laura Ings-Self The talent present in BLT’s youth group is obvious from the appearances several members have made on the main stage and in the bar, but the true scope of the ability apparent in their number – and the high standards set by Jessica-Ann Jenner and Pauline Armour – was overwhelmingly showcased in the triple bill of one-act plays the group performed.  We began with a two-hander featuring Josh Williams-Ward and Victor Poland.
