Cupid Programme

Cupid by Connor Dorrian
Directed by Katy Weir

It’s Valentine’s Day and the local postie has run off with all the letters to try and understand what Love is and why they can’t find it. In turn causing valentine havoc amongst the town.

A play about love, self acceptance and what Valentine’s Day is for or can be.

This new work is a co-commission between ARC and The Northern School of Art as part of the two organisations’ ongoing partnership. The piece is created collaboratively by playwright Connor Dorrian and third year BA (Hons) Acting for Stage & Screen students supported by students from BA (Hons) Film, TV & Theatre Production. The evening will be an opportunity for the students to showcase their work ahead of graduation in an innovative and dynamic piece of new writing.

The programme has been designed by working professionals to allow students to develop the skills required for performing on stage and screen.  This joint approach gives experience of both mediums and offers the student a distinct advantage in the job market or to explore further the craft of Acting. Students develop core acting skills in voice, characterisation and physicality which are to be utilised in performances for stage and screen.
