Former pupil directs theatre production at The Actors Centre in London

Random has been described by The Guardian as both ‘powerful and poetic’

John Livesey (OR 2009-2016) was Vice Captain at Reading School and went on to read English Language and Literature at Wadham College, University of Oxford is currently directing a theatre production called ‘random’ in London.

Random is about one family’s daily routine interrupted by a random act of violence. And each of their lives is changed forever.  Heart-breaking, soul-searching and stirring: random is a one-woman play from the award-winning writer, Debbie Tucker Green. Exploring knife-crime, race and grief, random is blistering in its honesty and heart.
