On Thursday 16 May the Lower 6th Drama Class went to see Dead Dog in a Suitcase by Cornish theatre company Kneehigh. A reworking of The Beggar’s Opera, it was an assault on the senses, combining live music, puppetry and excellent acting for what was an extraordinary piece of theatre. Having studied Kneehigh for their Component 1 performance, it was the perfect opportunity to see how the theory of Kneehigh’s practices are brought to life on stage. The students thoroughly enjoyed the performance, and it has given them lots of ideas for their future work.
