Incendiary Sixth Form Production

Posted on 15th October 2013

This week’s Sixth Form Production, to be performed in the Olivier Theatre from 15- 17 October,  is the incendiary Pornography by Simon Stephens; tracing the lives of Londoners in the electric days before the 7/7 bombings, when the Olympic bid and the Live 8 concerts were taking place abroad. Pornography is an extraordinary piece of work, in the spirit of Blake as much as The Clash. It is carved from seven blocks of text, with no characters or allocation of lines. Created in just four weeks, Pornography is both the story of our times but is timeless. For free tickets, please call 01730 711511 or email tickets@bedales.org.uk.
