Colet Play 2015

February 2, 2015

Last week, girls in the VII staged the annual Colet Play. This is a year-wide effort, exclusively directed, produced and acted by as many of the year as possible. This year, the chosen play was Simon Stephens’ Pornography, a dark and daring work that captures London leading up to the devastating 2005 terrorist attacks. Understanding the title was one of the first challenges. According to one of the directors, the connection between the 7/7 attacks and the adult industry lies in the lack of recognition of the victims’ humanity through a process of objectification. This year’s Colet Play maximised year-wide participation, as the production included short films, snippets of news’ footage and radio reports and required a large cast, management and tech team, allowing members of the VII with a variety of skill sets to contribute.
