Winner of 19 Major Awards!
From Stephen Daldry, the Oscar nominated Director of The Reader, The Hours and Billy Elliot, comes the multi award-winning West End production of J.B. Priestley’s classic thriller, An Inspector Calls.
Hailed as the theatrical event of our generation winning more awards than any other play in history, this landmark production from the National Theatre has thrilled audiences in the West End, on Broadway and throughout the world with its epic and wildly imaginative staging, raw emotion, evocative score, lashing rain and chilling suspense.
Four students from HNC Acting & Performance – Aiden Curran, Sean Langdon, Elliot Linden, Arran Robertson-Kane – joined the National Theatre’s touring company for the performances in The Theatre Royal. The students were selected on Monday, rehearsed and costumed on Tuesday and went on stage on Tuesday evening. Being part of the week’s run in the Theatre Royal gave the students the opportunity not only to be part of a production of the highest production values but also to work with actors of the highest calibre and to see that, in the words of one of the students, “They do exactly the same preparation and activities that we do in class.” It was a great opportunity for the students but also a reaffirmation of the work that is carried out within the college.
