Cyber bullies are being given a taste of their own medicine in as a new Redbridge theatre company put on their first production next month.

The Redbridge Musical Theatre Company, set up in October last year, performing broadway musical Out of My Comfort Zone on March 1-3.

The play follows the quest of nine teenagers in uncovering the identity of a mystery blogger who posts hurtful comments about their peers.

“It get’s quite gritty at times,” said South Woodford resident Molly Polden, 23, who plays Phoebe.

“At one point the blogger reveals the sexuality of one of the school kids before they are ready to come out in public.”

The show takes place at Redbridge Drama Centre, in Churchfield, South Woodford.

The cast are aged 14 to 23 and have been taking part in the drama centres performing arts and musical theatre classes.

Tickets are £10 for adult, £8.50 for concessions and £7.50 for students and and can be booked:
