VIII Play 2017

March 28, 2017

This term saw the VIII’s wonderful production of Moira Buffini’s Welcome to Thebes, a play in which Buffini uses classical characters to create a contemporary political fable, exploring the turmoil in Thebes in the wake of a brutal war. Whilst there were some brief moments of comedy, the evening was a shocking representation of a dystopian world and proved an intense viewing. The incredible set consisted of four eroding pillars and a floor filled with gravel, which really fostered a sense that the audience were in the middle of a war zone. With excellent performances from Paulinas and Paulines alike, it was an unforgettable evening.
