FROM MORNING TO MIDNIGHT (2016)
A Royal Central School of Speech and Drama production
Written by Georg Kaiser; Translated by Dennis Kelly; Directed by John Walton; Performed by BA (Hons) Acting CDT students, working alongside students from the BA (Hons) Theatre Practice
A young clerk steals 60,000 marks from the bank he works in to help a beautiful Italian customer, who he believes wants to elope with him. Having burnt his bridges, he embarks on an extraordinary journey to find some meaning to his life. This German expressionist play explodes the cosy hypocrisy of bourgeois life and has been brought to vivid life in Dennis Kelly’s translation which premiered at the National Theatre in 2013.
Performance dates: 30 November - 3 December 2016 at Webber Douglas Studio, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, London
