The lives of others

Jo Harford —

This week, Year 10 Drama students presented their pieces of Verbatim Theatre.

For the last two weeks, students have been working on creating pieces of theatre that tell someone's story word-for-word. The Year 10s presented stories that other Year 10s had written so, although they didn't exactly know who's words they were speaking, they did know a little about the lives of the people they were portraying; they go to King's, they are in Year 10 etc.

Verbatim Theatre can be a very powerful form of theatre and there were certainly many stories presented that had a huge impact on the audience.
