Theatre Trips to Oxford and Bath

A selection of pupils studying A-Level and GCSE Drama and Theatre Studies were treated to two wonderful theatre trips over the past couple of weeks. On Monday 18th February they were lucky enough to see a performance at the Ustinov Studio in Bath of the acclaimed The Blue Door, a play with original songs; listed by The Times as one of the most important shows to see in 2019. A true masterclass in acting from its two leads, the play was a compelling and memorable exploration of identity, race and culture.

Then on Wednesday 27th February, the groups travelled to the Oxford Playhouse to see a production of The Unreturning, a new piece by the renowned Physical Theatre company Frantic Assembly. The Unreturning explores the profound effect that war has on young lives, and asks – what does coming home really mean?” Stylistic, hugely inventive in both design and performance style, pupils were gripped and challenged throughout. They also had time to visit the Ashmolean Museum where the pupils viewed exhibits themed around archaeology, art, history and culture.

We are sure that by witnessing such depth and quality in both pieces, pupils will now be suitably inspired to use elements of what they have seen in their own work.
