Performed by BA (Hons) Acting CDT, working alongside students from the BA (Hons) Theatre Practice.


Set in the present day, but inspired by ancient myth, Welcome To Thebes is a passionate exploration of an encounter between the world’s richest and the world’s poorest countries in the aftermath of a brutal war.

Final year Acting CDT students collaborate with Filter Theatre to imagine a high-stakes gladiatorial arena in which competing ideologies do battle with one another.
