Beryl Goes To London! Our very own Annie & Jessica are performing at the Arcola Theatre in London.

Following the huge success of Beryl earlier this year, actors Annie Kirkman and Jessica Duffield who also teach Drama at Hull Collegiate School, will be performing at the Arcola Theatre in London from 16th October.

Annie and Jessica are part of She Productions, an all-female collective based in Hull & East Yorkshire who develop and produce vibrant original work driven by the female voice, alongside accessible and bespoke outreach programmes serving local communities. Their mission is to educate, to collaborate and make women heard. Previous productions include: The StorytEllas, Beverley Does Broadway, It’s Different for Girls and MissCast.

The production of Beryl by Maxine Peake was a sell out earlier this year and its three-week run will transfer to the Arcola Theatre in London next week. If you would like more information, please click here.

Hull Collegiate's Head of Drama, Andrea Asbury, said, ''Our pupils are really lucky to have two trained and highly skilled professional actors teach them drama. This gives them access to professional productions and reinforces our strong link with East Riding Theatre in Beverley where some of our pupils have appeared on stage.''
