Graduates collaborate on and off stage for new play
A new production at the Tristan Bates Theatre in London is demonstrating the talents of RADA graduates across many areas of a production: performing, writing, directing and design.
Drowned or Saved? follows chemist, writer and Auschwitz survivor Primo Levi decades after World War II as he struggles to complete his latest story, delving back into past memories and inadvertently bringing characters from his past back to life.
The show is written and directed by Geoffrey Williams who completed an MA in Directing at RADA in 2014. The cast of four includes Eve Niker, who trained on our MA Theatre Lab in 2015-16.
Bringing the show to life, the design and technical team also includes several graduates from RADA's theatre production training: Drowned or Saved? has been designed by Baśka Wesołowska; graduate and RADA's Head of Production Lighting Matt Leventhall is lighting designer; Euan Davies is associate lighting designer; sound has been designed by Rachael Murray; Lucy Mason-Lockett is stage manager; and Callum Finn is production manager.
The show plays at the Tristan Bates Theatre until 24 November and tickets are available from the Tristan Bates Theatre website.
