Dark, evil and controversial was the plot during a play performed by nine Brooksby Melton College students at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Performing arts students performed their own two-hour-long interpretation of the John Ford written play, ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore’ to an audience of around 200 people on Sunday.

Steve Fossey, Brooksby Melton College’s performing arts and media team manager, said: “The performance was a dark and twisted tragedy set in a corrupt world and it was amazing to perform such a dramatic play in a prestigious venue - home to the Royal Shakespeare Company.”

He said that students would continue their rehearsals for the play and look to perform at other professional venues in the future.

‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore’ will be performed in May at Melton Theatre and the Y Theatre in Leicester. Some of the students during their performance. PHOTO: Supplied
