ORPHEUS by Ted Hughes

A radio play written in 1971 for BBC Schools.
During lockdown, the junior members of Hornby Drama Group came together to explore Orpheus by Ted Hughes. They looked at Greek theatre, made masks, and explored the use of the Zoom video-conferencing tool in performance.
This is the culmination of their efforts; we hope you enjoy.... Click here


As we have been unable to meet together at the Institute stage during lock down, we have instead been busy rehearsing and recording a ‘radio’ play on Zoom! It is now available on-line for you to enjoy.

Written especially for HDG, The Blue Dragon Papers is set in Hornby in 1946 in the immediate aftermath of World War II, when Britain is leading the international race to develop an atomic weapon.

The play spans some tumultuous days in the life of Mrs Walton and her four children as they are unwittingly caught in an international web of intrigue.
Secret agents race to retrieve top secret documents which are hidden in the Walton’s family home in Hornby. Will the Russians get there first? Will the children save the world!!?

Available now for you to enjoy.
