Theatre Studies Enrichment Trip

Theatre Studies Enrichment Trip

The Theatre Studies Enrichment trip to Stratford upon Avon was a great success this week. Students attended a performance of Othello (which they will be studying for their A2 exam) as well as Marlowe’s rarely performed and wickedly funny tragedy, The Jew of Malta. An especial highlight was the insight session for the latter where students met not only the director, Justin Audibert but also leading man, Jasper Britton, both of whom were very impressed with their insightful and articulate responses to the play. Add to that an iambic pentameter treasure hunt around the main sights of Stratford and you really do have the ingredients for a midsummer (night’s) dream!
