The following has very kindly been forwarded by Melodrama Research Group member Jane Gallagher.
The students of DR575 Victorian and Edwardian Theatre would like to invite you to an exhibition of their work, opening in the Templeman Exhibition Gallery (Ground Floor, Cartoon Archive) at 6pm on Monday 7th April 2014.
The official invitation from the students (see below), contains further details about their work, including some hints about the melodramatic theme which some of them are taking on!
The exhibition is a visual tour through the theatre of the Victorian and Edwardian era, based around the primary sources that are only available in Special Collections. This is the second time which this student exhibition has taken pride of place in the Templeman Gallery and we would like you to join our celebrations to mark their success.
This is an innovative form of assessment which has combined primary source work with more detailed secondary research and is going to be an excellent example of Drama students’ work.
You are warmly invited to the launch event 6pm on Monday 7th April 2014 where you can enjoy meeting the students, hearing a short presentation, and sampling some light refreshments!
We very much hope that you can attend and your presence will be very much appreciated.

Many thanks for the email, and the invitation Jane. I’m sure we’ll all hope to attend this exciting event.
