Heavy Weather

The Senior School play, Heavy Weather, was in rehearsal since September and was performed on 8, 9 and 10 of December 2022. The three audiences were genuinely moved and engaged as they were taken on the journey of the central character, Mona. The play tackled topical and relevant environmental and mental health themes.  The play featured an ensemble of nine chorus members who provided a ‘Greek chorus’ style commentary on Mona’s feelings and experiences, alongside a series of ironic and mostly disreputable characters, who attempt to exploit her naivety. The superbly creative and collaborative cast were a joy to work with, the play incorporated choreography, songs and drumming sequences and the pupils from Year 10 upwards rose to every challenge – including, in Mona’s case, being covered in mud!            Ashley Fenton, Head of Drama
