WHAT WE DO
Bright Lights Drama was formed in May 2009 by Camilla de Quetteville & Natalia Rawley. Their combined skills of drama therapy, acting and producing was, and still is, a match made in heaven. They work across London in primary schools both together and individually, as well as running holiday workshops in local halls. All the while with their mantra:
WHO WE ARE
Camilla de Quetteville
After gaining a 2:1 degree in History and Politics from Newcastle University, Camilla trained in classical acting at the London Academy of Performing Arts and went on to work both on the stage and in front of the camera. She co-founded Odd Sok Productions in 2004 which saw sell-out theatre shows on the fringe circuit in London, such as the Finborough Theatre, as well as several visits to the Edinburgh Festival. For the last 10 years Camilla has been working in primary schools across London, delivering drama workshops alongside the curriculum, helping teachers get the most out of their ‘assembly performances’, working with G&T students as well as those struggling in the classroom and also directing end of year school productions.

Natalia Rawley has an MA in Drama and Movement Therapy and graduated from the Central School of Speech and Drama in 2004. She has since been working at the Life Centre in Notting Hill, at a Mother & Child centre in Kensal Rise, and was sent into many challenging schools for Kids Company. Natalia has also worked with stroke patients at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital, with the ex-prisoners at the charity Only Connect, in schools and with private clients. Natalia uses the storytelling aspect of her therapy degree to encourage children to become confident and express themselves using drama, dance and play. (MA (Hons) Badth, DBS).
WHERE WE WORK
Our work is nearly all in London and most of it focused on SE, SW, W, Postcodes. However we have travelled (to Hampshire, to Wales and even to the Borders) and if logistics allow, we will be there!
