For two nights last week the drama studio was transformed into a tense and troubling crime scene, as the stage was set for the World Premiere of Icarus’ Sister, written by drama teacher, writer in residence and professional playwright Mr Shakeshaft.
This taut crime thriller followed the story of missing teenager Claire Francis whose seemingly loyal group of friends turn against her under police questioning. The race is then on to try and discover the truth of why a young girl would disappear and seemingly no-one, but her father, wants her to come home. The nine strong cast, of 6th form actors, delivered a mesmerising production with particular mention going to Tobias and Millie for their commanding performances as the warring detectives Frett and Venn. They were ably supported by Ellie, Marcel, Wilfrid, Jemima, William, Rosie and Owain and this ensemble of actors produced a fantastically professional performance.
Well done to the whole cast for delivering a memorable night of sold out, exceptional drama.
