A Spell For Wornington Green was shot over 2020-2021 during the Covid lockdown on Wornington Green Estate in North Kensington and follows the hatching and first flight of two baby pigeons and the subsequent coming together of the community in direct action to prevent the felling of 37 trees as a consequence of urban regeneration. The short film is told from the poetic perspective of estate resident and playwright Natasha Langridge (BBC Writers Academy and Meyer-Whitworth Award winner).

From the people who have worked with Natasha
Natasha has directed ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ & ‘Blithe Spirit’ for INCISOR Theatre Co. Her direction is incisive, very physical and theatrical.
We all enjoyed working with her and hope to do so again.
Natasha Langridge worked for The London Drama School for many years and I found her to be an inspirational teacher and colleague.
The students loved working with her on challenging and entertaining devised pieces as well as text.
Natasha is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher of playwriting. She approaches playwriting not only from words, but also from embodied practices of improvisation and devising techniques.
Her dynamic teaching style provokes and facilitates the student’s creativity.
Natasha is an extraordinarily talented writer. My experience of her as a teacher/workshop leader is that she is generous in sharing her skills and a fabulous communicator, who quickly establishes strong relationships with her classes be they young children, young people or adults.
Natasha is an inspirational teacher who encourages creative ambition and boosts her students skills in an atmosphere of positive energy. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
The children really enjoyed the course of workshops that Natasha came to do, they had great fun and seemed to learn a lot even in that short time. The children were really animated and excited when talking to me about the drama club.
We are hoping that Natasha is able to come back and run some more clubs with the children in the near future.
