CELEBRATING DIVERSITY, CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION
Our collaboration with the Curve theatre continues to provide our Drama BA (Hons) students the opportunity to work and perform in a professional environment. This year’s production takes on Joan Littlewood’s pioneering satirical masterpiece, Oh What a Lovely War!
In previous years, as part of our association with Curve, Drama and Performing Arts students have performed in: Blood Wedding, (2021) by Federico García Lorca’s; Enron (2019)., by Lucy Prebble; The Crucible (2018) by Arthur Miller; A Clockwork Orange (2017) by Anthony Burgess; 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 Theatre; 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 gain valuable experience as assistant directors and assistant stage managers.
Our 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.
