37 Degrees is the latest production to be staged by the Performing Arts students at Calderdale College. The plot is centred on an exploration of the behaviour of a young man, who is socially repressed and dominated by erratic obsessional behaviour who enters the safe sanctuary of a fall out shelter. However it is also a place of judgement and trial, containing necessary cruelty. Michelle and Rachel portray their own narrative which alludes to his ultimate sin. Sadistic and erotically fantastical each character has their own agenda. Ultimately 37 degrees is a play about the issues of our contemporary world which allows us to recognise that religion is an archaic social struggle which forces the characters in to a position of insanity.37 Degrees – full story
