    Students put on Edinburgh style festival

    Theatre students are bringing a free Edinburgh style festival to Middlesex University’s campus in Hendon.

    Theatre students are bringing a free Edinburgh style festival to Middlesex University’s campus in Hendon.

    The Apple Core Festival is a showcase of seven productions created by final year Theatre Arts students. The performances cross a number of genres and include comedy, classical theatre and plays based on novels. The shows have been chosen, written and produced by the students.

    Final year student and production manager Zoe Sofair (24) said: “It’s been a long process since October – it’s an interesting experience running this as a festival. The course is great for new skills because we do a bit of everything - as production manager it’s extremely useful to have several strings to your bow.”

    Zoe put herself forward for the role after getting experience at the Edinburgh Festival, working on a month long production for Dotted Line Theatre. She said: “Coming to university has enabled me to get involved with stage management through contacts the tutors have. I’d never done stage management before and I’m enjoying putting into practice what I learnt through my work experience.”
