The collaboration will provide students with the opportunity to be an integral part of a high profile professional production from preparation and rehearsals right through to final performances.
Dr. Blighty is inspired by the true story of how, during World War I, Brighton's Royal Pavilion, Corn Exchange and Dome were converted into a hospital for Muslim, Hindu and Sikh soldiers from the Empire, who had been wounded while serving on the Western Front.
Actor, director and producer Ajay Chhabra, the co-founder and co-Artistic Director of Nutkhut whose credits include Bend it Like Beckham, The Archers and Holby City, recently visited City College to meet students and provide details of the production.
Ajay said: "The students were immediately engaged with the project and with the work of the company.
"I was impressed by the enthusiasm the students and lecturers have for site specific work.
"I am delighted to be working with City College s Acting and Dance department, in bringing to life an often forgotten history of Brighton's connection with World War 1 and its connection with soldiers of the Empire."
Ajay has also directed and performed for 'Diesel' Clothing Company in Italy, Greece, Holland, Germany and Denmark, bringing together fashion and theatre in creating a theatrical presentation of Spring/Summer collections with catwalk models, classical dancers and actors.
Acting & Dancing Tutor Siou Hannam added::
"Working with Nutkut will give the students an opportunity to work alongside a leading force in outdoor theatre, see how a show is developed and participate in a professional piece of immersive theatre with high production values."
