A teenager from Abbots Langley is set to make her debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

Ashleigh-Louise Barrell, 17, who was a pupil at St Michaels Catholic High School until last summer, will be taking to the stage at PQA Venues @Riddle’s Court to perform in Three by playwright Harriet Braun, an original National Connections play first performed at the National Theatre.

Ashleigh-Louise is a first-year student at The Pauline Quirke Full-Time Academy of Performing Arts, London’s newest full-time theatre school.

Ashleigh-Louise was part of the first cohort of students to be accepted at the prestigious school, where they are studying for a two-year Diploma in Performing Arts course.

The academy was set up by much-loved TV star Pauline Quirke, best known for her role as Sharon in the popular TV series Birds of a Feather.

Ashleigh-Louise will be performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe alongside other students from the full-time drama school in the play Three, which focuses on the lives and loves of six teenagers during a long, hot summer.

Playwright Harriet Braun, who wrote Three, also created the BBC3 series Lip Service, which followed the love lives of three gay women living in Glasgow.

She has also written episodes for BBC1 series Mistresses and Hotel Babylon.
