The Terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty...

... opens tonight! There are still a few tickets left for this evening's performance and for tomorrow night.

Terry Dumpton is a popular, confident 14 year old... that is until he moves school. His new classmates single him out as a fresh target for their bullying, calling him names like ‘Humpty Dumpty’ and making vicious threats for his lunch money.

Terry is tormented to the end.

His ‘terrible fate’ causes a split amongst the bullies, hounded by fear, pity, guilt and deceit, prompting them to ask questions about morality, prejudices and community spirit.

A different one on each night, a small group of our students will also preview their ‘work in progress’ in preparation for their practical exam. This is a valuable part of the devising process. The following pieces will be performed before ‘The Terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty' on each night:

Wednesday 16th
The piece has been devised from ‘A Christmas Carol’ and is about a woman who looks back on her life, guided by the spirits from her past.

Thursday 17th
Devised from ‘Of Mice and Men’, a man tries to find his happiness. Does he succeed?
