Performing the Past 2015

For this year’s Performing the Past module, six groups of second year students once again tackled Moliere’s Imaginary Invalid (we last saw Moliere on stage in 2013). Each group used the play as a jumping off point and this ultimately led us to six diverse and original pieces, set variously in an office, a game show, a bar, a doctor’s surgery, a hospital and a bath tub from the 1950s!

It was a fine end to the year and the six shows formed part of a busy period on the Leeds campus. Theatre Studies students were involved in numerous other shows, such as LUU Theatre Group’s Boys, staged in the Banham Theatre. This was followed by Posh and Arcadia in the same Workshop Theatre venue. There was The Boat over at stage@leeds and West Side Story by the Stage Musicals Society in the soon-to-be-renovated Riley Smith Hall.

We’ll be back in January when the Practical Essay process starts in earnest and it looks like another packed programme, with twenty-six potential shows to be presented over one weekend in March.

Until then… Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
