Theatre Trips 2014

Theatre Trips for All Hallows Theatre Study Class

10

Sixth form Theatre Studies students have once again been on several theatre production trips as part of their studies.

In December we were fortunate to see Headlong Theatre company’s creative adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984. This production was thought provoking and intelligently staged; this has inspired both the student’s practical course work and encouraged a high level of critical analysis within the written element of the course. In mid January we went to see ‘To Walk in your shoes’ a Verbatim style piece of theatre. This production raised the question of female asylum seekers and the struggles they face in seeking safe refuge in the UK.11

More recently we took yr12 to see ‘Blindsided’ starring Julie Hesmondhalgh ‘Hayley from Coronation Street’ this was a powerful production written by Simon Stevens; it tells the story of a young girl growing up in Stockport in the late Seventies.

Our students have left each production feeling creatively inspired and have thoroughly relished the opportunity to see a range of theatrical styles.
