The play’s the thing

posted in: Production | 0

My first full day at work: in the classroom, shadowing Viloshni Naidoo, the Head of Performing Arts at Dominican, followed by the introductory meeting to “Production”, which is the name given in the extra-curricular programme to the school play… which makes a change from “Congreve”. (For those not in the know, that’s what they call the same thing at Stowe… which is far less intuitive.)

Much to our relief, the attendance was excellent, and with any luck most of them seem prepared to come back for another go.  Val thought me mentioning that one of the stories in the play involves two characters who drown another in the river, and that she returns as a spirit to exact revenge, did something to dispel the notion that it was all a bit childish.
