Drama trip to the Old Vic

Year 12 students outside the Old Vic

A level revision took the form of a trip to the theatre; our year 13 drama students had the chance to watch the Old Vic’s revival of Machinal, a 1930s expressionist play by Sophie Treadwell that they are currently studying. In their upcoming exam, they will be asked to explain how they might stage or perform extracts of the play. Watching this visceral and physical production was an invaluable way for students to grasp the dramatic potential of the script.
