Drama section is series of non-sequential scenes that this year, will all follow a single theme of fear, presenting a perhaps slightly darker tone than previous renditions. As well as existing content from the stage and screen, we've extracted some fantastic original pieces from some very talented writers within our society. We have absolutely no doubt that every single member of our cast will give a brilliant performance tonight, and we hope you are thoroughly immersed in the section and the talent it presents.
Leaving is a drama focusing on four close friends: Jasmine, Harry, Steve & Sienna as they are about to leave university, the biggest change in someone's life: as they are truly about to enter adulthood. This is a catalyst for each of the group being forced to face their own inner demons, come to terms with the struggles of their pasts, issues with each other, and the uncertainty of the future.
COMEDY SECTION (13th May)
Comedy section is a carefully selected production of sketches from shows such as Mitchell & Webb, sketch show to Rowan Atkinson. We've spent weeks rehearsing and we hope you enjoy the production that will leave you smiling and laughing.
We look forward to seeing you there!
