In the penultimate week of term, the terrifying witch-hunt of Salem, Massachusetts in 1692 was brought to life on the Meyer Theatre stage for the senior play. The audience was captivated by the extremely high quality of the pupils’ performances and detailed sets.

Lower Sixth pupil Adebayo Karim passionately played John Proctor, the doomed man pulled down by his former sins, who finds redemption in his martyrdom. Upper Sixth pupil Asha Colmar expertly played Proctor’s wife, Elizabeth, with compelling maturity. Lower Sixth pupil Elenice Andrews was the manipulative and controlling Abigail Williams, traumatised by her upbringing and given ‘knowledge’ by John Proctor. Upper Sixth pupil Will Watson played the educated Reverend Hale with precision and professionalism, summoned to Salem as God’s emissary but unwittingly endorses the girls’ lies. As Mary Warren, Lower Sixth pupil Florence Lunnon, masterfully showed her character’s vulnerability and descent in to madness. Upper Sixth pupil Georgia Webb gave a powerful cameo as the victim and slave, Tituba, and Lower Sixth pupil Oliver Turkman was accomplished as Reverend Parris, whose zealotry ultimately proved to be his demise.

The success of the production owed much to the contributions of Deputy Stage Manager Lower Sixth pupil Ollie Whittingham and Year 9 pupil Barney French in the Technical Crew.
