Numbers / Embassyland - Landor Theatre - Nov 03
Numbers directed by Britten Barry: A comedy set in the midst of a power struggle at an English girls’ public school. The vicious Katherine Judah is desperate to be the new Head Girl, and the atmosphere in the study dorm an hour before the crucial announcement is tense.
