Masterclass joins the London Marathon

Published 26 January 2017

The Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust (Masterclass) will be represented at the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon by playwright Poppy Corbett. This will be the first time the organisation will take part in the famous race.

Poppy has worked closely with Masterclass in the past having staged the West End debut of her play, Hatchling, at the Theatre Royal Haymarket after winning their “Pitch Your Play” scheme.

The Masterclass programme hosts talks with leading industry figures, onstage workshops, careers advice sessions, creative opportunities and paid apprenticeships for young people aged 16 – 30. Poppy will return to the Haymarket in February to host a Masterclass with fellow playwright Polly Stenham on 7 February

Discussing her marathon challenge, Poppy said: “I’ve always believed in helping people further down the ladder and running the marathon for Masterclass would give me the opportunity to do so in a practical way. Masterclass changed things for me and I’d like to change things for them too.”

Blayne George, Programme Director at Masterclass, added; “We are delighted to have finally secured a place in the London Marathon and are equally overjoyed to have Poppy run for us! Masterclass stands firm as a place which will always support young people in the early stages of their theatrical career.”
