On Wednesday 21st March a group of strong Year 10 GCSE Drama students were able to go to the Old Vic to watch the play Fanny & Alexander. This was preceded by a 2-hour workshop (led by the Old Vic) on the Monday. It was the longest play the group had ever seen (three and a half hours) yet their focus and behaviour were exempt, far outweighing that of the other schools in the theatre.
The play dealt with serious issues of loss and death over the course of three acts, with Act 2 being particularly powerful. It was a wonderful example for the students to see and will aid them in their quest to gain the highest marks possible come Year 11. The group will be going back to the Old Vic in May to watch Mood Music.
