Booking is essential and you are welcome to bring one guest with you to the open day, please indicate so on the booking form.
The open day will incorporate a matinee performance - "The Strip" - by final year BA Acting students, followed by Q&A session with the cast and tutors after the matinee.
The Strip is a dizzying play of connection, fate and love.
In America, Ava, a woman aspiring to be a female impersonator, is offered a job at Tumbleweed Junction, but no instructions on how to find it. Unknown to her, her mother cleans toilets there, and records letters to her daughter that she will never send. The man who has come to repossess Ava’s car is falling in love with her. A journalist, Kate cleans her automatic pistol and writes letters to an astrologer.
In England, redneck Lester and his wife and baby are living in a tiny flat in Earls Court. Across the way live gay fitness freak Martin and his dissatisfied roommate Tom. The astrologer Suzy prepares star charts and replies to Kate’s letters. The sleazy, shadowy Otto Mink manipulates these strands, nudging the characters towards the story of their lives. Richly theatrical and savagely comic, The Strip takes us on a roller-coaster ride to the epicentre of contemporary civilisation: a place of myth, magic and stark modernity.
