YOU CAN take a trip through the corridors and classrooms of a 1960s Bermondsey comprehensive before it’s bulldozed to the ground.
The former Scott Lidgett Secondary School in Bermondsey is currently being used by the prestigious Old Vic theatre.
A collection of their alumni from over six years of Old Vic New Voices community cast are staging their first production as Waste Not theatre company. Using the Old Vic Workrooms, this new company’s promenade production ‘State of Things’, will see the drab 1960’s building transformed for a collection of short plays, centred on the idea of collective bargaining. From a tree hugger on a mission below the back stairwell, to warring sisters in the former science lab, to robots in the old school’s kitchen.
The building will be opened to the public for just two nights on Thursday and Friday, March 1 and 2.
The audience will be guided around the building, which is set to be demolished to make way for luxury apartments by developer Grosvenor.
