DMU AND CURVE THEATRE
PRESENT
A CLOCKWORK
ORANGE

BY ANTHONY BURGESS

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY, CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION

Our collaboration with the Leicester's Curve theatre has given our students the opportunity to work with professional directors in a world-class setting. Designed by world renowned architect Rafael Viñoly, the theatre lies at the heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.

In previous years, as part of our association with Curve, Drama Studies students have performed in: Our Day Out (2016) by Willy Russell; Our Country's Good (2015) by Timberlake Wertenbaker; Mother Clap's Molly House (2014), by Mark Ravenhill; Fen and Serious Money (2013) by Caryl Churchill; The Laramie Project (2012), by Tectonic Theater; Greek and East (2011), two plays by iconic British playwright Steven Berkoff.

The project provides an exciting opportunity for our students to work on challenging theatrical texts within a professional environment.

As part of the collaboration, students also gain valuable experience as assistant directors and assistant stage managers.

Drama Studies students have also been cast in leading and support roles in other major productions at Curve as part of Curve's Young Company and its annual Community Production.

CALENDAR 2017

A Clockwork Orange has now finished for 2017. We are currently planning for the 2018 show, and will be back soon with further information.

Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange is the 7th annual co-production with Curve, offered Drama Studies BA (Hons) and Performing Arts BA (Hons) students the opportunity to work with the theatre’s artistic team and perform at Curve.
