On a reality television show, six remarkable – and remarkably young – geniuses are competing for the coveted Golden Brain trophy and the title ‘Britain’s Brainiest Child’. As the contestants battle it out round after round, the pressure mounts, the spotlight gets harsher, and each is faced with questions they were never expecting. Who will win and who will lose – and what exactly does winning mean anyway?

It has been a pleasure to direct this show about a group of young people struggling against the pressure to succeed, before finally realising they can achieve amazing things on their own terms. This is a real ensemble show, which provides great opportunity for building teamwork, communication and collaboration amongst the group, in addition to continuing to hone their individual skills as performers.

I have been particularly impressed by the commitment and work ethic of this group, who have a great group dynamic and support each other as an ensemble.

Enjoy the show!
