Productions.

Each year we stage around 12 theatre productions between our degree and diploma courses. Each is carefully chosen not only to give the students the best possible platform but to contribute to the professional theatre scene in Bristol. We are now working with our new Literary Manager, Breman Rajkumar, to search out diverse and stimulating texts that will give Bristol audiences the chance to see a new and exciting range of theatre.

A Vampire Story

Two young women try to settle in a small British town. Their names are not their own. Their relationship with each other is not clear. Are they sisters, as their assumed identities declare? Or are they mother and daughter?

As the younger of the two begins to tell her story, a strange and ambiguous past is revealed.

A Vampire Story was written for the National Theatre’s Connections programme 2008. It was the basis for the 2012 film Byzantium.

Directed by John Walton / Written by Moira Buffini

Posh

"The club is ridiculous, rich little boys pouncing around in tailcoats, performing something they haven't got the guts to be outside of the dinners. Just going round in disguise."

We are 10 young performers. We are getting ready to play the members of an elite dining society. A club. Founded more than 200 years ago, whose alumni include David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson. A club whose activities include intimate acts with pig heads, trashing rooms and burning money.  A club which represents a system we are sick of. A system sick to its core.

We will try to play the game, to put on their clothes and their shoes, to adopt their voices and ideas and we will pretend. We will pretend that we are ten young men with cut glass vowels and deep pockets, intent on restoring our right to rule.

Get ready for a wild night of debauchery, decadence and good wine.

Welcome to the Riot Club.
