'Romeo and Juliet' screening sparks debate among Year 9 girls

'Romeo and Juliet' screening sparks debate among Year 9 girls

On Wednesday, Year 9 had the opportunity to watch a Schools Broadcast streaming of the RSC's recent production of 'Romeo and Juliet'. 

Taking a very modern approach to Shakespeare age-old tragedy, the performance was vivid, vibrant and deeply moving. 

The director had chosen to stage the play in a contemporary setting which really helped our pupils to reflect on the relevance of the play's events and themes to our own world. 

The production and its characters provoked some really interesting debates among our Year 9 pupils, and the whole event was a brilliant chance for them to watch such a high quality piece of theatre.
