On Thursday 15th March the Year 11 GCSE Drama class, alongside a handful of talented Year 9 GCSE Drama students travelled to the Donmar Warehouse to a watch a matinee show of the play, “The York Realist”.

Written in 2001, the play explores a love story between two men that come from different parts of the country and what this means to them. The play is set in the 1960s and it was a gripping, powerful and naturalistic performance which the students adored.

They were also lucky enough to have a 2 hour workshop the week before and then have a Q&A session with the actors after the show.

This will be the play the Year 11s will write about for their exam, so fingers crossed this amazing play will steer them to success!
