About Melonade

With 1 in 10 people within the UK having some form of dyslexia, Melonade questions measuring intelligence and hard work by timed exams. An exhilarating and hilarious combination of clown-esque theatre and live art. “At the age of 8, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and dyscalculia. I spent most of my education stressing over assignments and exams. I struggled to construct my thoughts into sentences, notice my spelling mistakes and finish the written exam in time with eligible writing. More than several times, I read the question wrong. Like most things, it had its weaknesses and its strengths. I struggled to produce my thoughts into written words in a timed exam, but excelled in creative writing when given the time. Being neurodiverse was something which made me different. Overtime, I learnt to appreciate my difference for its strengths. Melonade is a fun, fierce celebration that no brain is the same.” Exams are getting harder every year, coursework has been removed and students in education are being forced to produce A* like chickens laying eggs. But when life gives you melons, make melonade! Supported by Royal Central School of Speech and Drama Age restriction: 14+
