We are delighted to publish our Creative Arts programme, including a range of events from Warwick Prep and King’s High School, for the Autumn Term. September Friday 7 & Saturday 8 September 7:00pm

SENIOR DRAMA: UNMAN WITTERING AND ZIGO BY GILES COOPER A new teacher, hoping to make a good impression in his first job, finds that bullying and gambling among his pupils are the least of his worries. Caught in the middle of his new wife’s restlessness, his fellow teachers’ apathy and the headmaster’s blatant cover-up, John Ebony becomes the unlikely detective. Whilst this classic play was written for Radio in 1958 was adapted for TV in 1965, it continues to present uncomfortable questions about the necessity of authority and the need to act morally. Questions which are as vital today, as they have ever been. This production has been co-directed by students and staff, and developed from our Thursday afternoon workshop group. Tickets: £7 and £4 (concessions)

SENIOR PRODUCTION – A LAUGHING MATTER by April De Angelis It’s 1773 at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The crowd is getting restless. The leading man’s unconscious but the show must go on. Set in the theatres and coffee shops of eighteenth century Georgian London, this rich comedy of manners presents an irreverent version of real-life events, by telling the story of David Garrick, Dr Johnson, Oliver Goldsmith and a new play called She Stoops to Conquer. With a cast of senior students from both Warwick School and King’s High School this modern comedy evokes the wit and farce of BBCs Upstart Crow and Black Adder, and promises to be a fast-paced and hugely enjoyable production. Tickets £8 and £6 (concessions).
