UCL student season at the Bloomsbury

7 November 2006

UCL Union student societies take up residence at the UCL Bloomsbury Theatre this autumn with four events.

Every year the theatre hosts some of the best student talent in London as UCL students bring their productions to the theatre.

On 16-18 November 2006, UCL Union Drama Society presents Ibsen's 'A Doll's House'.

Shutting out her stifling life and marriage with false bravado and a little girl attitude, Nora's apparently perfect world threatens to disintegrate when a person she had nearly forgotten about arrives at her door.

This new adaptation moves the setting from the Victorian era to 1950s America, addressing the perpetual questions of duty to family and society.

On 20 November 2006, the UCL Union Jazz Society will be holding their concert, entitled 'Blues in the Bloomsbury' from 7pm.

The Annual Medical Students' Revue, on 23-25 November 2006, is 'The Wizard of Obs', when the RUMS Manic Depressives present their unique take on the classic story 'The Wizard of Oz'.

Fully modernised and re-scripted for the more mature audience, there is nothing Disney about this production. 'The Wizard of Obs' is a hilarious, energetic and fun-packed student performance of the like you will never have seen before. Featuring all the usual suspects from a slightly different perspective and a plethora of other comic characters, this is a show not to be missed.

UCL Union Musical Theatre Society take over on 30 November - 2 December 2006 to present 'Jekyll and Hyde The Musical' - Wildhorn and Bricusse's musical adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's timeless classic, 'The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'.

Against the backdrop of a corrupt and highly immoral Victorian London, the story relates the struggle of the respectable Dr Henry Jekyll in his groundbreaking experiments with human nature and the inherent conflict between good and evil.
