On the 22nd, 23rd and 25th May the Year 13 BTEC students put on their final piece – a major part of the assessment for their certification. This was a challenging piece which they had devised themselves with the help of Julia Mallard.
The play was set on an island where five survivors from an air crash had been marooned and were struggling to survive. The characters were well drawn and the individual conflicts caused by such a disaster were portrayed well.
The five characters were played by Molly Chisholm, Lorna Holmes, Hannah Maguire, Coral Phillips and Sam Sinclair – all of whom gave convincing performances. At times this was a tense play – with gruesome overtones of cannibalism.
The students put a great deal of work into the project – script, posters, set design, not to mention rehearsals and the performance itself.
Well done to all of them and to Julia Mallard for overseeing the whole project.
