Attempts to describe her?
Attempts to destroy her?
Or attempts to destroy herself?
Is Anne the object of violence or its terrifying practitioner?
Martin Crimp's "17 Scenarios for the Theatre" shocking and hilarious by turn, are a rollercoaster of late twentieth century obsessions. From pornography and ethnic violence, to terrorism and unprotected sex, its strange array of nameless characters attempt to invent the perfect story to encapsulate our time.

Attempts on her Life, Crimp's best known play, was first staged at the Royal Court in 1997. It has subsequently been translated into twenty languages and revived at the National Theatre.

UCA BA (Hons) Acting & Performance Course is run in association with Farnham Maltings.

For their final project, our Year 3 students rehearse and perform in a summer season of contemporary plays with a professional director.

We’d be delighted if you’d like to come and see their work before they graduate.
