With the Olympics around the corner, Drama and Theatre Studies students at London South Bank University have got Greek fever and are presenting an innovative new production of the ancient Greek text Antigone.
The play, based on Antigone by Sophocles, is an age-old story of power, loyalty and love, and is the result of the hard work of a team of 40 LSBU drama and theatre studies students. It will be directed by professional director Rebecca Manson-Jones.
Taking one of the starring roles is Katy Fitzpatrick, a former teacher from Lambeth.
Katy worked at Archbishop Sumner Primary School in Kennington for the past few years before she decided to take up studying again and signed up to the Theatre Practice: Creative Producing course at LSBU.
Katy wants to gain the skills and knowledge to run her own dance and drama school.
"I'm really excited to be starring in this production, and we hope lots of local people will join the audience and support the show," she says.
"Working on the show has been a wonderful experience, and I would now love to share the skills I have gained by setting up my own local dance and drama school."
