The Students' Union Drama Society at the University of Central Lancashire is making
its fifteenth trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year.
The students will perform Willy Russell's perceptive comedy Stags and Hens for six
nights between Monday 18th August and Saturday 23rd August at StJohn's Hall on
Princes Street, Edinburgh.
It's also the fifteenth trip for University Arts Centre Manager, Trevor Lloyd, who
organises the tours to Edinburgh.
"This is an opportunity for our students to perform on the world's biggest arts stage and
I'm so glad that we have been able to give so many young artists that opportunity.
"It is hard work and for ten years I've been saying 'I'm never going back again' but I
keep going back because it is such a good experience for the students.
"We are very grateful for the financial support provided by people across the University
without which students would not be able to experience the Fringe."
The students will be giving a free pre-Edinburgh performance of Stags and Hens on
Friday 151h August at the University's StPeter's Arts Centre at 7.30pm.
13th August 2003
