On the 6th November 2013 the whole of year 9 went on a trip to the Marlowe Theatre to watch a Shakespeare production of The Merchant of Venice. The play was very interesting and the language was well spoken. Although the stage was small they used the space very well and made it look bigger. Also the special effects like the blood and fake eye being pulled out looked very realsitic! In the play the actors were all men to coincide with the Shakespeare theme, as women weren’t allowed to act in shakespearean times. We had been analyzing the play in our English lessons learning about the language and the history in those days
Year 12 IB Literature students took a trip to London on Tuesday 5th November to see the award winning production of ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the night-time’ We have been studying the book in class and it was fascinating to see how they brought the book and the character of Christopher to life and it has definitely helped with our studies of the book in class.
We thoroughly enjoyed the staging and the actor portraying Christopher gave a very convincing performance. We also did a great job of independently navigating ourselves around London, only getting lost in rush hour tube traffic once!
