Lower Sixth Drama pupils have performed their scripted extracts from three selected plays for their practical exam.

Pupils explored class, race, gender and sexual orientation in mid-twentieth-century Britain in A Taste of Honey by Shelagh Delaney, the sensational Salem witch trails in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, and humour and eccentrics in The Odd Couple by Neil Simon.

The pieces varied immensely in genre, time and place, and the pupils developed their characters using the theatre practitioner Konstantin Stanislavsky’s "art of experiencing" and by finding contextual research to understand their characters more fully.

They all performed with flair and confidence on the night of the practical exam.
