Each year the university awards drama students the Stanley Evernden prize, which supports them in taking a play to the Edinburgh Fringe festival. This years winners will take an abridged version of Chekov’s The Seagull and Romeo and Juliet.
Each version of the plays will last 40 minutes.
Romeo and Juliet
For this immersive adaptation of Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy we welcome you to the opening of Capulet’s ‘Cognito’s Bar’! Our lovely guests; we would be humbled to have you (unless you are a Montague of course!). Drinks, company and laughter; what could go wrong?
A new and condensed adaptation of Chekhov’s must-see classic. Often described as the first great modern play; this tragicomedy follows the deterioration of a young artist after a performance of his play proves disappointing The Seagull, drama in four acts by Anton Chekhov, performed in 1896 deals with lost opportunities, romantic and artistic conflicts, and the clash between generations.
