The ArtsEd Sixth Form Theatre Company are taking Moira Buffini's black comedy, Dinner to the Chelsea Theatre, London. After weeks of rehearsals, the company of Year 12 & 13 students will be taking to the professional stage on 8th and 9th of May.
The Sixth Form Theatre Company provides fantastic opportunities for our students to grow and develop as performers. Paul Tully, Head of Drama and Acting and Director of Dinner says: “This opportunity allows the students to experience something different to performing in school. They need to be able to adapt quickly to the new environment and it really does give them a taste of what it is like to be performing in a professional space.”
In recent years the Sixth Form Theatre Company has won awards at the National Student Drama Festival and the Independent Schools Association’s Drama Competition as well as taking part in the National Theatre Connections project.
The students have worked exceptionally hard on this production and would be delighted if you could come and see this vicious comedy:
On a night thick with fog, Paige organises a dinner party to celebrate her husband's new book. This is no normal dinner party though. Primordial soup and frozen matter are served with aplomb by a 'dumb' waiter, while her guests savage each other as the evening proceeds. A laugh out loud black comedy one moment and then a dark twisted story the next. From party games to terrorising guests, this is a party that has surprising twists at the end. Some would say the dinner date from hell!
