Bathory Begins

Date: 12 Aug 2019

Year 10 Art teacher Mrs Bathory is most definitely a reincarnation of the sadistic, serial-killer Countess, Erzebet Báthory. It’s pretty obvious to her class of seven girls. The last remaining survivors.

When the students in 10F decide to pull the prank of the century and destroy the beast for good, there’s just one thing that stands in their way. The private school boys from Judas Gents have arrived, and they don’t feel so comfortable with murder.

Girls vs. boys. Public vs. private … And an undead woman of the night. Things were never going to end well.

Written by Emme Hoy and Gretel Vella is for “anyone who loves shades of darkness and light in their comedy,” says director Rowan Bate. “At its heart, behind the jokes and the murder plots, is a powerful message about social equality that speaks to this moment in history. I hope that audiences leave the show having had a laughter-filled night at the theatre, but also thinking about the way we as members of society make hasty judgements about our fellow humans.”
