Things we missed in the rush #1

It occurred to me, as it does every year at this time, that there were many WT performances and staged works from the last academic year that never received any attention here. It’s not because they weren’t worthy of recording… just that we were bloody busy at the time! So, in an effort to put […]

Student Production 2010

For various reasons (largely down to timing) the three proposals received for this year’s Student Production have been withdrawn. This means there is a vacancy if anyone would like to fill it. We are offering: space, technical support, a staff mentor and funding for a performance in week 5 of next term (week commencing 25th […]

Krapp’s Last Laugh

I saw a production of Krapp’s Last Tape, Beckett’s analysis of old age and retrospect, in York a few weeks back.  Beckett once said most of his plays were comedies, and certainly many of his plays have aspects of music hall and clowning.  In the opening moments of Krapp’s Last Tape, the aged Krapp finds […]

It’s time to blog ‘The Trial’… As most of you will (hopefully!) have heard, the WT is venturing out into student productions with a production of the trial this year. We are officially two weeks into our rehearsal process, with two weeks remaining… it’s having to be a fairly speedy process… In terms of what’s […]

UPDATED: Lighting Up @ Workshop Theatre

This year, for the first time on Light Night, the Workshop Theatre (School of English) is opening its doors to present a varying collection of events to challenge and intrigue… The schedule is hectic (not unlike that which you might find scrawled outside an Edinburgh fringe venue) but I’ll try to explain it as best […]

What Remains? Pinter’s Ashes to Ashes, popular culture, memory and atrocity

Hi all. I’ll be giving a 30 minute talk on Monday 28 September on Harold Pinter’s Ashes to Ashes, its connection with Sarah Kane’s Blasted and why it overtly handles images of the Holocaust without directly referencing them. The talk will be at 1pm in the Alec Clegg Studio of the PCI (Stage @ Leeds) […]

Where did all the good theatre go? Opportunities not to be missed.

What happens to the hurricane of creativity that is the Edinburgh Festival throughout the remainder of the year? It does not orbit the planet, a big ball of histrionic chaos (though that’s what I sometimes like to think). Equally, it does not simply come to a halt and cease to exist until the time is […]

Since then his play ‘Red’ was produced by The New Works theatre company and toured to Liverpool, Glasgow and London in 2006, and was later […]

Freshers week in 17 days.

Dear God that came around fast. Just seventeen days until LS6 becomes the nation’s largest student theme park once again. Seventeen days until ridiculously oversized, pimped and club-night branded vehicles parade up and down woodhouse lane, forcing tequila shots upon unwitting and frequently unwilling passers by. Just seventeen days until the front of the Parkinson […]
