This year's Senior Inter House Drama Competition took on a new shape, with students bringing together duologues and scenes from some of the countries most celebrated writers, into one piece of theatre. A night of brave and exciting performances brought stories exploring grief, transitioning, and the power of male friendship to the fore.
The level of commitment, risk, and creative agency invested by students allowed the quality of work to far transcend the limited rehearsal time they were given and generate an evening which touched both head and heart in equal measure.
This year also saw the exciting addition of a house band, a collaboration with fiercely talented music students led by the wonderful Matthew Herd who through improvisation, live scored the performance.
In a tight competition Meadows took home Best Production for their work on Duncan Macmillan’s 'Every Brilliant Thing', with Strout’s Isaac Halpern and Calvert’s Aryan Janjale winning the Best Actor awards. It was a great evening celebrating the playfulness, creativity, and talent of our students.
Thank you to everyone who supported.
