This week girls from Brighton & Hove High School joined some of Roedean’s Lower Fifth to Upper Sixth girls in the Roedean Theatre for a captivating performance of Euripide's Medea by Splendid Productions.
Splendid Productions is a theatre and education company that creates challenging, vibrant theatre for young people and also provides expert training in all areas of drama from Practitioner theory to Presentation skills.
The performance of Medea brought Splendid Productions’ trademark energy and contemporary political outlook to an ancient story of man and woman, betrayal and revenge.
Roedean has a long association with Splendid Productions who have visited for a number of years bringing very high quality professional theatre into the school. They are a very well respected company that never fails to deliver and Kerry Frampton, Director of the company was a House Play adjudicator here a few years back.
The performance was followed by a workshop to support A Level Drama & Theatre Studies, specifically the preparation for Unit 4, the practical examination.
“The company's performance really was 'Splendid', so they lived up to their name! They have performed for us before and we always get completely sucked in as an audience. The workshop was really good fun and incredibly useful as we are able to use some of the techniques we learnt for our A-Level; It was a really enjoyable morning and I can't wait for the next one.” Gabrielle Tomlinson, Upper Sixth.
