Drama Department trip to 'War Game' in Bristol
19th November 2014
As part of our Remembrance activity, and to mark this year's centenary of the start of World War 1, Year 9 and the GCSE and A level Drama students had the exciting opportunity to go to Bristol Old Vic theatre to see “ War Game”.
This play was inspired by Michael Foreman’s novella and it told the story of the opening months of the First World War through the eyes of a village football team who sign up, train, are despatched to the Front and then play in the famous Christmas day match across No Man’s Land.
It was a wonderful performance, and really helped our young students to make connections and draw similarities between the men who fought and died for us and themselves. It was a powerful and moving story and an excellent experience for all our students.
