Bathory Begins


Year 10 Art teacher Mrs Bathory is most definitely a reincarnation of the sadistic, serial-killer Countess, Erzebet Báthory. It’s pretty obvious to her class of seven —yes, seven — girls. The last remaining survivors. When the students in 10F decide to pull the prank of the century and destroy the beast for good, there’s just one thing that stands in their way. The private school boys from Judas Gents have arrived, and they don’t feel so comfortable with murder. 

Girls vs. boys. Public vs. private… And an undead woman of the night. Things were never going to end well.

The Senior ATYP Foundation Commission Award develops a new work to celebrate the skills of actors aged between 14-17. Published by Playlab, this is your chance to see the first production of a show that will be presented in schools around the country for years to come. Bathory Begins is the 2017 winner of this award.

I knew visiting a public school was going to be atrocious, I just didn’t think the murders would start so early in the day!
