Christina Alagaratnam, a student on the Creative Writing: Writing the City MA, wrote Darkridge during her work placement module with Doughnut Productions.

Darkridge is set behind the wrought iron gates of a Victorian asylum and will premiere on 16 September 2015 at 3 Mills Film Studios in Stratford, East London.

Christina said: “Interning for Doughnut Productions has been one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my life. I’m truly grateful to Kate Austen and Andy Cooper for taking a chance with me, it's an internship that writers would dream of and I'm very lucky to work with such kind people. They’ve created something special with the Doughnut Theatre space, it's a wrap around stage with swivel seats, so it's really pushing the theatre world into the 21st century. Writing for this specific type of stage was challenging but exciting. I also think that interning for a start-up business is the best experience for any graduate. I wanted an internship that could teach me about the entertainment industry, because that's the area I want to work in....and Doughnut has taught me just that. I’ve been part of auditions and rehearsals and have been in the thick of all the action, observing and learning every step of the way. I'll remember this experience for the rest of my life!”
