Drama students present a night of thrills in final-year show

Drama students are set to present an evening at the Grand-Guignol for their final-year production, taking place 1-3 June.

Entitled Blood, Sweat and Sperm: An Evening at the Grand-Guignol, the production is a festival of six short plays, acted and directed by students, inspired by the famous Théâtre du Grand-Guignol in Paris (1897-1962).

Performing two comedies and four horrors in the style of the famous horror house, the production will showcase the creativity, drive, and talent of students at Loughborough.

The plays are as follows:

  • The Wax Museum by André de Lorde and Georges Montignac (1910)
  • Kama Sutra by Régis Gignoux (1922)
  • The Ultimate Torture by André de Lorde and Eugène Morel (1900)
  • The Unhinged by Olaf and Pierre Palau (1921)
  • Tics by René Berton (1908)
  • The Old Women by André de Lorde and Alfred Binet (1922)

The production will be held at the Sir Robert Martin Theatre at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £5 for students and £7 for the general public. To avoid disappointment, please book in advance via the website.

There will also be two performances of this production at The Yard Theatre in London on Monday 13 June. To book tickets for this production, click here.
