The Senior Drama Club performed Dennis Kelly’s dark humoured play: DNA on the 19th June 2023; a dark and mysterious play that follows the turmoil and repercussions of a group of teenagers dealing with a prank that goes wrong. The cast were Year 9-11 students and each student took on a role that challenged and pushed them to consider the deeper emotions and trauma these characters are dealing with and the ways in which they are coping. After bullying and pranking a peer, the group believe they have accidentally killed him. The audience watch as their lies and emotions eventually take control.

We are incredibly proud of the efforts from each student – not only did they take on board a challenging play with enthusiasm, but their dedication was outstanding; many of the cast were completing their IGCSE examinations at the same time we had rehearsals and yet they still performed at an exceptional standard with an astute attention to detail and quality in acting. We would like to take the time to thank all members of the cast and crew for their work: Lwiza C, Tyler B, Tia B, Alex D, Nic R, Matthew G, Theo M, Sharon X, Kelly L, Eli T, Emil S, Yoshiki S and Benjamin K – thank you and well done!
