As part of an excellent GCE/GCSE drama workshop today in the 150 Theatre, pupils from Years 10, 11 and 13 enjoyed a performance of ‘Pericles’ by Gill and Bill from Multi-Story Theatre.
The play was both moving and funny and is a clever adaptation of Shakespeare’s play of the same name. Despite being a 400-year old play, it deals with refugees and our treatment of them, something that is as relevant today as it was back then.
Bill and Gill have adjudicated in House Drama competitions in the past and so are well known to the pupils.
Some of the pupils stayed on for an informative workshop which will no doubt be of great assistance to them as they study towards their final exams.
