'Dr Faustus' - 18 Mar 2020

This performance has been cancelled, due to CoronaVirus precautionary measures currently in place.

We are very excited to be hosting the internationally renowned theatre company ‘Splendid’ on Wednesday 18th March in the Dobson Theatre. They will be delivering a workshop for our Fourth Year GCSE Theatre Students during the afternoon followed by a stunning contemporary performance of Dr Faustus commencing after school and finishing by 5.15pm.

This performance is another opportunity for Live Theatre Evaluation work so I would like to encourage attendance. The Drama department are subsidising the event but there will be a small cost of £5, which can be paid using the KESpay KP955.

Should you have any questions concerning the trip then please do not hesitate to contact me at School on the email address below.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs L A Gilmour

A bit about the play –

Splendid Productions present a new creative adaptation of an all-time classic. The brilliant scholar Dr Faustus uses his fabulous intellect to summon the actual devil to grant his every wish! But the devil has a price: it will cost Faustus his soul. Is this the best deal in history – absolutely everything for absolutely nothing? Or… is it perhaps the other way round…?

Splendid’s devilish cast of three pack a timeless tale into a thrilling hour of laughter, music, magic and amazement. Morality meets mortality in this ingenious reinvention of an Elizabethan drama that couldn’t be more contemporary.
