I attended a German Theatre festival at St Paul’s School, where I performed a monologue in German from Friedrich Schiller’s Die Räuber. This was quite challenging to prepare, but it definitely paid off in the end as I won first prize for best monologue! Overall, the event was a great opportunity for me to meet fellow German students from all over London and explore the language in more detail. One of my favourite parts was the authentic German Abendbrot (evening meal) complete with traditional sweet treats. I also loved watching other schools’ impressive performances from a range of playwrights, covering all sorts of entertaining topics!
