Double the Drama
The Drama Department, once again, transformed both people, places and things into not one, but two theatrical events this week. The History Boys tells the story of the staff and students at a grammar school in the North of England, circa 1986. Alan Bennett’s much loved play won every Olivier and Tony Award going when it first premiered at the National Theatre in 2004. The all female cast of The History Girls performed an uplifting devised show about the snow day Britain experienced back in 2010.
Both shows delighted packed audiences, who were treated to the usual high standard of theatre we have become accustomed to here at RGS. Both casts and all the crew involved backstage are to be congratulated on their superb achievements.
