BA (Hons) Acting Alumni Elliot Warren and Olivia Brady’s production, FLESH & BONE will be showing at Pleasance Courtyard at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, having won £10,000 as part of the Charlie Hartill Fund.
The pair started Unpolished Theatre Company in September 2016 and Flesh and Bone is their first show. Described as “A show that gives the gritty residents of an East London Tower Block a stage, through their wickedly eloquent voices we are thrust into their stories, held by the scruff of the neck, and made to listen” FLESH & BONE follows the lives of five characters, three of which are played by AUB Alumni, Elliot Warren, Olivia Brady and Alessandro Babalola.
AUB’s Animation Industry Liaison, Amy Backwell, has won the award for Intern of the Year at Creative and Cultural Skills Awards.
