Our Year 9 drama club triumphed with their exciting Artaud-inspired performance of a “Memory of Lizzie” in the week of short plays at the Kenton Drama Festival last week. Year 9 pupil, Katie F’s unsettling performance as the murderous Lizzie Borden won her two awards; Best Youth Actor and Best Actor overall, beating over 70 other actors, adult and youth. Our gifted ensemble created a memorable and chilling atmosphere with their skilful movement and voice work rewarding them with two major nominations “Best Ensemble” and “Best Youth group.
A massive thank you and congratulations go out to this hard-working and dedicated cast and crew who all contributed equally to the overall success of this wonderful performance.
A huge thank you also to our parents who kindly transported heavy set, costumes and actors to and fro to Henley over the bank holiday weekend!
Esther Brown and Jane Harris.
