Over the last year, we have adapted as required to the pandemic. Since March 2020, we have delivered four online presentations and 10 in-house productions (with a limited audience), many of which were also livestreamed. All of this was delivered by our final year actors and crewed by technical students. Our teaching was predonimantly onsite in 2020-2021 and we plan to operate as usual in-house for 2021-2022
