Where better to produce a play about youth than Bradfield College, Reading, which has been educating young people since it was founded in 1850? Not only that, but every three years, the College produces a Classical Greek drama in the original language and has been doing this since the nineteenth century.
Last month, a group of Bradfield College drama students decided to take a break from the rigours of ancient Greek and produced a one act play of mine – ‘Gone Fishing’. A canny choice, I think, as the play is all about a young man striving to find his way in the world. I hope I’m not giving too much of the plot away if I say the young man eventually turns into a fish!
May I wish all the students at Bradfield College a happy and non-aquatic life in the future!
