Year 11 Drama Performance – “The Roses of Eyam”

The cast and crew of “The Roses of Eyam”

After a near sold out audience on Wednesday night, the Year 11 Production of “The Roses of Eyam” finishes its run tonight.

The students have worked extremely hard to present a polished performance which tells the story of the English village where the Great Plague struck in 1665. The people of Eyam, led by their two ministers, William Mompesson and Thomas Stanley, made the courageous decision to seal the village which stopped the disease from spreading across the surrounding country. They faced tragic consequences but were successful in containing the Plague and saving countless lives.


Tickets are still available from Lee (ph 8313 7106) and are priced at $15 for adults and $8 for USC students.

The performance takes place in the Little Theatre on the University of Adelaide campus and commences at 7pm.
