Play, Tue 28 Nov 2017, £5




Written from scratch by Arts Award pupil Peter Dickinson, Aristaeus is a three-act Greek tragedy, where a Greek war hero has just finished serving his public duty to Athens. Although many think he is beginning to lose his mind, we are made aware that he is negligent over the fact that he has a daughter, Ademia, who has doubts over where the family inheritance will go. After Aristaeus' wife, Demetria, has a miscarriage, they are fortunately blessed with a son. Demetria however is less than fortunate and dies in childbirth. With no faithful guardian of the household, Aristaeus is forced to re-wed, not before his new-born son, Telephus, dies mysteriously. Now with no-one looking after his house, and an egotistical daughter, this a tragedy that no one saw coming.

Eastbourne is entered from the north via the A27 or the A22. If approaching from the A22, at the large roundabout just north of Polegate, follow the signs to Willingdon (3rd exit) through the traffic lights at Polegate, until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.

If approaching Eastbourne from the A27, at the junction with the A2270 traffic lights, turn right (signposted Polegate and Willingdon) and follow the A2270 until you reach the Willingdon roundabout.

At the roundabout take the second exit directed to the town centre (west). Follow straight on the A2270 until you come to a roundabout with the railway station on your left and the Prezzo restaurant on your right. Then turn right into Grove Road, keeping the library on your right and go past the police station, following signs for Devonshire Park, which is adjacent the College. The College will appear on your left in Grange Road. Old Wish Road is at the far end of the pitch which is in front of the school.

From other directions, head for the seafront and turn inland opposite the Martello Tower (the Wish Tower) joining Carlisle Road. Turn right into Grange Road and immediately right into Old Wish Road.

The Birley Centre is a 10 minute walk (or 5 minute taxi ride) from the station. Follow Gildredge Road to the end, then cross over South Street and Furness Road to College Road. The Birley Centre is situated at the end of the road on the right, at the junction between College and Carlisle Roads.
