Molly Johnson - Fringe Festival Production

Molly (Jaz) Johnson (Keswick 2017-19), left her mark in the role of Deputy Head Girl (boarding) and Deputy of House 3, as well as Lead Dance Captain. She was always on stage, playing Nancy in the production of “Oliver!” and starting the street dance troupe —not to mention the countless concerts and events in the Choir. 

She is now about to finish her degree in Law with American Studies at the University of Sussex and intends to continue her education by pursuing a Masters in Special and Inclusive Education. She has performed spoken word poetry at various pubs in Brighton and is a part of various activist groups in town. 

This May a production of her first play “I was kinda the bad guy” is being put on in the Brighton Fringe Festival.

After months of persuasion from Nadine, her best friend, Diane finally agrees to seek professional help for her mental health problems and the grief of her mums' absence. Much to your dismay, as she begins to improve, you both slowly start to realise that you are her imaginary friend. 

The play asks us what would you do if you found out you were the villain in someone else's story and how far would you go to keep yourself from getting written out of the script? 

You can find out more information here or by reaching out to Molly on her Instagram @angst.magnet
