Performances tonight and tomorrow at 19:30 (Friday 24th & Saturday 25th) in the Theatre.
Class 8a are performing 'Liberty, written by their very talented class teacher, Martin Schmandt, especially for them. NO TICKETS NEEDED, JUST COME AND ENJOY
Upon arrival at Ellis Island Immigration Station, New York, posh bewildered Russians, timid Irish girls, lost Romanians and skinny Italian businessmen are sieved through the system. In this huge chaos, officials are picking out the injured, illiterate, poor or ill, as well as blocking Bolsheviks from spreading into the USA.
New York has developed nationality communities and precincts, but the borders are shifting. Our play follows immigrants, established aristocrats and gangsters competing against the prohibition of alcohol through their troubles, laughs, street fights and pricklingly awkward love situations. Please come and share the liberty and rules of 1919 New York.
