York College Are Putting On A Show To Mark Retirement Of Legendary Performing Arts Tutor


  • York College Sim Balk Lane Bishopthorpe, YO23 2BB United Kingdom (map)

This year marks the retirement of Anthony Ravenhall, director, teacher at York College and performer in events such as Yorks great Wagon Plays. Therefore for his final show we have decided to make it as big and as brilliant as possible to celebrate!

Therefore we are doing a show called "Echoes of Hubris" which is a modern adaptation of the Greek tragedies "Oedipus Rex" and "Antigone"

Two legends, two men, and the destruction that ensues them. Starting in War torn 1940's England, the story of Oedipus is brought to life in Bletchley Park as the workers try to crack the enigma code, unaware of the catastrophic secret that will bring down the monarchy. Antigone hasn't learnt from the previous heartbreak and soon a disaster is fast approaching. Can Creon save his own future and redeem the past, or is Britain stained by the war and prophecy forever?

Performed by Year 2 Acting students supported by Year 2 Backstage Arts students at the Alan Ayckbourn Theatre, York College from Wednesday 15th - Friday 17th June at 2.00pm & 7.00pm. Tickets are £6 (£4 concessions) available from the College Finance Office: 01904 770495
