Junior Summer Plays
27 June 2011
Described by the Drama Department as “experimental theatre”, Around the World in Eight Short Plays was a show consisting of the Lower 5 Drama class and Upper 4 students (chosen by audition),who performed eight dramatised pieces and tales whose origins came from all over the world.
The audience were first led into Blake Studio 1 where they saw the opening scenes of Around the World in Eighty Days and the adventurous wager taken up by the even more adventurous Phileas Fogg. Thereafter the audience was split into four groups and the actors from these first scenes became guides, taking each group Around the World in eight short Plays.
We watched stories from Korea, Australia, America, Russia, South Africa, and Italy, each portrayed by a different style of acting and all highly entertaining. The tales ranged from murder mysteries, silent movies, traditional folk tales to the Commedia of the Italian theatre. The audience then reassembled in the Blake Studio to see a shadow puppet version of Little Red Riding Hood (France’s entry) before watching Fogg and company act out the final scene and the winning of the bet.
It was a thoroughly memorable, enjoyable and original evening. Mr. James and Miss Adams are to be congratulated for their mentoring of the individual pieces and putting the whole event together, as are the young actors who worked so hard to put on such engaging performances.
