Enormous success for Old Maynardian

Posted on December 4, 2017


Old Maynardian, Anastasia Bruce-Jones (a leaver in 2015), is continuing to wow audiences across the country with her stage directing prowess. In the summer she directed her own play (Loud in Babel: written under the pen name of Colby Quinn) at the Festival Fringe to rave reviews. From Edinburgh, she then travelled down to Cornwall, where she adapted and directed Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience at the famous Minack Theatre after which she went back up to Cambridge to make a short film, followed a few weeks later by directing the premier of a new musical, The Glass Cage, by Cambridge graduate Noah Fram. Following that, she performed her swansong to acting by being in a production of Romeo and Juliet…as Romeo!

Despite being so busy with theatre life, she was also appointed a Scholar of her college, Gonville and Caius, Cambridge, following her outstanding exam results at the end of her second year. A glistening future awaits and we will continue to watch Anastasia with great interest and excitement!
