On the 16th January, the English faculty were fortunate to welcome the Box Clever Theatre Company to perform at QEGS. Year 11 were treated to live re-enactments of scenes from the play ‘An Inspector Calls’.
Together with musical instruments, small group discussion and audience participation, pupils were taken on a dramatic journey to discover who was to blame for the death of Eva Smith.
The tension, drama and anticipation, usually only experienced by an audience in a live theatre, was successfully transported into the Main Hall. Pupils taking their GCSE examination in the summer benefited from hearing essential quotations brought to life as well as experiencing dramatic irony, entrances and exits and contextual background.
