Gallery: Talented youngsters are heading off to tread the boards at the famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival

TALENTED students are getting ready to tread the boards at Britain’s biggest celebration of the arts.

Youngsters from Framlingham College will be staging Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest and William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Under the name FramBag Theatre, the company of seven students will perform both plays back to back on each day of the run at Greenside – Venue 231.

The interpretations of each classic play shed new light on their themes and issues.

In The Importance of Being Earnest, men are playing women and women playing men, highlighting the innuendo, sexual tension and slang which made Wilde such a controversial figure.

The students will be performing all next week, from Monday until Saturday.
