Fringe Success

The NHEHS Drama Department’s production of Lorca’s “Blood Wedding” at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer was a sell out success.

Review website “Three Weeks” described it as ” … powerfully acted and thoughtfully presented” and praised our all female cast for creating “… a restricted, claustrophobic atmosphere – essential to a play about the limited choices afforded to women within the confines of rigidly traditional, provincial Spain.”

The days flew past in a whirlwind of performances, flyering and of course seeing as many other shows and performances as they could.  Our Minerva company of twenty four performers, one costume designer, one stage manager and  a company manager  loved the whole Edinburgh experience, including the initially daunting taster performances given as part of their publicity drive on one of the open air stages in front of the crowds thronging the Royal Mile.
