Parliament Square play rendition wows audience

Friday 28 January 2022

On Wednesday 19 January, Richmond upon Thames College’s (RuTC) Level 3 performing arts students performed their rendition of the profoundly thought-provoking play, ‘Parliament Square’ written by James Fritz.

The play, which had won the Judges' Award in the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for best Playwriting, was a resounding success at both the afternoon and evening performance in the College’s new 160 seater auditorium.

‘Parliament Square’ presents the story of Kat, a young woman who tests how far she is willing to go for what she believes in. She wakes up one morning and travels to London, in order to carry out an act of self-immolation. The play questions the extent to which, if any one individual can effect

Jane Swift, performing arts teacher at RuTC, explains “This play was really quite hard-hitting for me, I found the act of self-immolation just unimaginable... my students however relished the opportunity to get involved with something so delicate.

I am absolutely thrilled at the turnout for both performances, it was great for the students to perform to such an engaged audience – we cannot wait for our next performance.”

There were two performances of the play that took place on the 18 January, both showings boasted a full and enthralled audience who greatly enjoyed the play.
