Year 13 student, Camoy Reid, who has a place to read English Literature at Oxford next year, achieved third place in the University’s recent creative writing competition ‘Contagion Cabaret’.
In June 2020, following the first nationwide lockdown, The Chipping Norton Theatre and the University of Oxford collaborated to produce a film on the theme of contagion, with music, drama, and short talks. From that came a creative competition producing artistic responses to the short film.
The judges were astounded by the extremely high quality of all the entries. Indeed, cast members from The Contagion Cabaret were so impressed by the winning three entries that they have asked to record performances of the works.
These will be uploaded in the near future, so stay tuned to see them!
