Royal Holloway Drama students perform at the Barbican

Six drama graduates from Royal Holloway have hit the headlines with their production of Would Like to Meet, which runs at the prestigious Barbican theatre from 28 April-16 May. Their theatre company, non zero one, is the newest and youngest to be commissioned by the Barbican. The show originated in the students' coursework for their degree and addresses the evocative question: 'Can you miss someone you've never met?' Audience members are given earpieces and guided individually, by a recorded voice, around the Barbican's massive foyer: the effect is startling, opening up possibilities for intimacy, chance encounters, and momentary interaction that leaves an indelible mark.
