RGS win at Leatherhead Drama Festival

 

Winner of the Best New Writing Award went to Oli W, Tom B, Nicole J and Goya V for their play dealing with the effects of Alzheimer’s on families. This powerful and lyrical piece of physical theatre tells the story of two brothers blighted by this horrible illness. The adjudicator praised the group for their dynamic story telling and their lyrical choice of soundtrack. She was moved to tears by the sensitivity of the piece.

Goya V also won the prestigious Best Actress Award at the Festival- she is a talent to watch in the future. After her phenomenal performance in Angus, Thongs and Snogging –it is lovely to see her delivering such a diverse set of performance skills.

Both RGS pieces submitted for this competition were short listed for awards- including Liv B, Sammy W, Jake W and Izzy R’s  punchy and hysterically funny/ satirical attack on every day sexism. The pieces were competing against outstanding local and county school and youth theatre groups – including beating Caterham, Reed’s and Epsom School entries.

Congratulations to our two technical boys – Josh and Andrew M for all their help too.
