A huge thank you to Cargo Theatre Company from Haywards Heath College for their powerful physical theatre performance of "The Lucky Ones" to year 10 GCSE Drama and year 9 last week.
The brilliant staging and energy of the cast combined with a fluid, pacey story line made for a great afternoon's entertainment. Devised by the company from real stories about refugees and their experiences it certainly packed an emotional punch with moments of great tragedy and great courage on display. It inspired our year 10, who are busy creating their own devising pieces, with lost of ideas - and showed the year 9, the pupils who have selected GCSE Drama next year, what can be possible with a very small cast and minimal space and props.
The workshop that followed was brilliantly run and gave all pupils a chance to respond practically to the work they had just seen.
Thank you so much Cargo, and tutor Rose, it was brilliant!
