Performances

Over the course of two weeks in March we'll be holding four plays by our Performing Arts students. 

These performances are assessed pieces of work and allow our students to participate in a real working environment with real audiences.  The performances cover a range of key plays by leading playwrights.

All performances take place in our state of the art Sarah Siddons Theatre at our Paddington Green Campus.

On Tuesday 8th March our BTEC Level 1 Performing Arts presents Love & Information

A new play from Caryl Churchill, one of the UK's most influential playwrights.

Someone sneezes. Someone can't get a signal. Someone shares a secret. Someone won't answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone's not ready to talk. Someone is her brother's mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone's never felt like this before.

In this fast moving kaleidoscope, 18 actors try to make sense of what they know.......

Children of Killers
by Katori Hall

The president of Rwanda is releasing the killers. Years after the Tutsi genocide, the perpetrators begin to trickle back into the countryside to be reunited with their villages. A trio of friends, born during the genocide’s bloody aftermath, prepare to meet the men who gave them life. But as the homecoming day draws closer the young men are haunted by the sins of their fathers. Who can you become when violence is your inheritance?

Directed by: Ellie Scanlan

On Thursday 17th March our A2 Drama & Theatre Studies presents Clockout:Lightsout

In a world in which we are forced to be ‘sane’ Clockout:LightsOut asks the question, what happens when we cross the border to ‘Insanity’.

Amidst the 21st century society we live in there lies significant issues, which are continuously misunderstood or hidden from wide members of the public, whether it be in Theatre or Television. The piece Clockout:LightsOut discusses masked themes such as Racism, Mental Instability, Neglect and Domestic Abuse. The piece tackles these topics by highlighting them to a viewing contemporary audience. As a collective, we sought to raise awareness for struggles that everyday people like you and me experience. 

Overall the piece provides a platform to subjects that are constantly stigmatised against.

Performers: Bruno D’almeida /Yafatou Jammeh /Faisa Mohamoud / Tonicha Gayle

Tutor: Mark Spillane 

Special thanks to: Craig Hanlon-Smith / Mark Batchelor /Andy Tickell / Lewis Galvin / Ryan Yengo / Glenn Meling / Dan Liggins
