National Theatre Connections Performance – On Friday night, 8th March, a group of students will be performing in a new play called “Flesh”. It follows the story of a group of teenagers who wake up in a forest with no clue how they got there. They find themselves separated into two different teams but have no idea what game they are expected to play. With no food, no water and seemingly no chance of escape, it’s only a matter of time before things start to get drastic. But whose side are people on and how far will they go to survive? The play is about human nature, the tribes we create and cannibalism.

The performance start time is 7.30pm in the Assembly Hall, Tickets are priced £3 for children/students and £5 for adults. Tickets available from the Drama Department or on the door.
