Emotive play by degree students

The work of a British playwright is being celebrated by university-level performing arts students this month.

Attempts on Her Life by Martin Crimp, is being brought to life by students on the BA (Hons) Applied Studies in Theatre top-up degree, on Wednesday (18 December).

They will adapt Crimp’s scenarios for the theatre, which were first staged at the Royal Court in 1997, portraying a rollercoaster of 20th century obsessions from pornography and ethnic violence to terrorism and unprotected sex.

Students will portray an array of nameless characters in an attempt to invent the perfect story to encapsulate today’s world, showing the way we view people and ourselves, sometimes humorous, often shocking and always entertaining.

The show, which starts at 7.30pm, is suitable for people aged 16 and over and tickets cost £5 and can be purchased from www.createtheatre.co.uk or by calling 01623 413363.

Tutor Andrew Proctor said: “In tackling such a challenging text the students have excelled in acknowledging the author’s sentiments, imaginatively and creatively commenting on a range of moral ambiguities found in a world of globalisation and consumption.

“Creating character and plot in a play that has neither, is an artistic achievement in itself, and one that invites an audience to question its own societal role.”
