The first Hundred Drama showcase of this term took place this week with some outstanding performances from the pupils involved. These performances form part of their examined IGCSE drama coursework, which is internally assessed before being sent to Cambridge for moderation. The programme of events consisted of a selection of hard hitting, gritty and challenging monologues as well as three visually engaging group scripted extracts, all from published plays. The lighting and set designs created the right atmosphere for each piece and the audiences on both nights responded very appreciatively. All in all, the pupils rose to the challenge of delivering high quality performances in front of a live audience.
