Audiences wowed by Senior Plays

May 18th, 2016

Cassandra RisingThis year’s Senior play took the form of a double-bill of plays penned by Monmouth School drama teacher, and professional playwright, Mr Shakeshaft. The first half of the evening was the explosive, ‘We’re Not in Brixton Anymore’ starring Jack, Lucas and Ed as the hapless Tony and Bernie who are attempting to work out how they’ve ended up in God’s waiting room and why the third character, Charlie, is so much more clued up than they are… until all is shockingly revealed in the final moments
of the play.

After a relaxing interval the audience were invited back into the Drama studio for the world premiere of ‘Cassandra Rising.’ This was an exciting, ensemble comedy, brilliantly led by Joe and Jess, and fantastically supported by the comedic talents of Brittany, Hamish and Freddie, as they took us on a journey of lies, complications and love as the eponymous heroine attempted, not always successfully, to tell the truth about her life. Well done to all involved, who were left in no doubt, due to the thunderous applause, that the audience had thoroughly enjoyed their evening of original drama.
