A message from Peter Cooke, Head of the School of Drama:

“The tragedy in Orlando early on Sunday morning was an appalling and senseless assault on peace loving people everywhere. In targeting a joyous LGBTQ gathering, it was an attack on all who choose to live peacefully in a diverse and inclusive world where care for, and the well being of others, is paramount. I know that the families and loved ones of those involved in the Orlando tragedy will be in the heartfelt thoughts and prayers of all School of Drama community members. Please take care of your family, loved ones and yourselves in these increasingly troubling times.”
