Drama in a Day tests leadership and creative skills Posted - 20/06/2019Back
The ‘Drama in a Day’ competition puts the leadership and creative skills of the Lower Sixth Drama students to the test as they cajole, stimulate and encourage young pupils in the First Form to create short plays. After an exhausting day of rehearsals, the boys performed in front of a sold-out audience and an ‘X-Factor’ style judging panel featuring Ian Clapp, Louisa Blair and myself. Each group had been given a photograph from the series ‘Beach Therapy’ by Martin Parr to use as a starting piece for their work, and these were used in intelligent and clever ways, with the subject matter ranging from being sucked into a video game to the problem of plastics on the beach.
