Jan Woolf has developed a full-length centenary play The Man With the Gold, from three readings that have taken place at Newark Civil War Museum, 28 January 2017; St John’s College, Oxford, 23 September 2016 and at the Cockpit Theatre, London, January 2016.
This new play conjures the person of Lawrence from the grave, giving him the chance to address us directly and debunk the myth industry which conscripted his ghost so lucratively.
Join the Drama and Classics Departments for a reading of the play followed by a Q and A with Jan about her experience as writer-in-residence with the Great Arab Revolt archaeological dig in Jordan in 2013, which inspired ‘The Man With the Gold.’
The Christ’s Hospital Seniors tackle Karen Louise Hebden’s stage adaptation of Dicken’s most famous story which is ‘more faithful to the original than any other published version.’
Making use of traditional carols to underscore the action, this immersive version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ will envelop the audience in a Dickensian world of snow, mince pies and ghostly visions.
Join the CH senior pupils as they follow the successful sell out performances of ‘West Side Story’ with this timely Christmas classic.
‘A show that’s as warming as a glass of mulled wine on a winter’s day. Could there be higher praise than that?’ Daily Mail.
Join us and get into the Christmas spirit with a seasonal programme of Christmas carols and readings in the glorious setting of Christ’s Hospital’s fine Chapel.
Refreshments, including a complimentary mince pie, will be served afterwards.
Drama and music students celebrate the life of the artist, craftsman and designer responsible for creating the chapel murals, through writings and music of the time.
Tickets are required but are free for all. There will be a retiring collection.
