*** COVID-19 UPDATE (17/3/2020) ***

Hi All,

As per the most recent Government statement, we have decided to sadly cancel What Wonder. We are truly devastated however, this is the only decision that can be made. We want to keep our cast, crew and our audiences safe so there is no option but to cancel.

We will be issuing refunds for tickets however, if you would like to donate yours to Dramsoc in order to show your support to all the work we have done so far and to fund the arts further, we would greatly appreciate this.

Please email us at whatwonderbristol@gmail so we can arrange either option for you.

We’re sending all our love to those who have been with us during and those who were meant to be with us at the end.

Lots of love,

The What Wonder Team x

What Wonder is the story of Ethan, who’s grieving a death that hasn’t even happened yet. His girlfriend and Dexter are trying to make him go home, but he can’t face the tragedy waiting for him there, not yet. No, far better to read a book of hers. To stay right here until he works out how to cope. Far better to sit and wait.

His book is the story of the young people in Corinth, Ancient Greece- shaken by the protest Helene is staging. She demands entry to the medical school, despite being a woman, and won’t come down till she’s either a doctor or dead. If womanhood means servitude and picking lemons like the other girls, she doesn’t want it. She wants gore and glory. And here’s how she’ll get it: She’ll sit and wait.

What Wonder is, at it’s core, a story about grief, ambition, and the relationships that make us.
