This judged season is put together entirely by students, being the writers, directors, producers, actors and designers of all the shows.
The opening production will be:
Writer: Rory Calland
Director: Ollie Norton-Smith
Assistant Director: Elena Brearly
Producer: Virginia Saul
Harper struggles to appreciate the world in her time; destined to be an explorer perhaps she was born too late and the earth is now shrunken and shrivelled.
Around her is only decay, the world is beyond its prime yet people still absurdly cling to existence.
Joined by Captain Robert Scott, Harper simply desires to catalogue the animals on her beach, but her family is looming above her.
- This production contains some strong language and scenes of a violent nature.
Tickets are available from the Manchester Students’ Union
