After two years of being prevented by the pandemic conditions from performing the annual drama production traditional in all Steiner schools, it is so exciting to be back - on a stage, with real live actors and a real live audience!
Back in February our Junior Group launched the return to normal with evening performances in Feakle Hall of their spine-chilling comedy "Howltel Spooktacular". Many thanks to Larissa Manley for getting the production up and running and to her able assistants Jo Kramers and Monica Hannaford. A triumph!
And now comes "Playing for Time", written and directed for the Senior Group by Nell Smyth, to be performed in the same venue just before the Easter break. Based on the incredibly productive year of 1599, we see William Shakespeare haunted by characters from his well known works past and future, as well as pestered by other folk who feel they ought to be included (given the skewed picture of the Irish and Spanish that prevailed at the time). Bawdy, farcical, deeply serious and moving by turns this promises to be a magical evening for celebrating the return of theatre.
