Senior Girls GCSE Drama Moderations
Year 11 girls performed their well practised GCSE Drama pieces last week
The two pieces were:
Di and Viv and Rose by Amelia Bullmore
Three students join forces at university. Life is fun. Living is intense. Together they feel unassailable. The piece displayed a funny and thoughtful exploration of friendship's impact on life, and life’s impact on friendship.
Toni Dibley who played Rose demonstrated a clear role change from being the typical uni student to then falling pregnant with twins, trying to juggle life decisions and and ongoing dilemmas that life throws at you. Dom Wright who played Viv demonstrated her ongoing annoyance to Rose whilst Charlotte Lee who played Di often questioning the decisions made by the others showed an effective thought provoking role.
Notes to Future Self by Lucy Caldwell
A deep performance of a girl who has been diagnosed with cancer and the understanding that her life will soon be over. The piece was extremely dramatic looking at the lives of the people who come in touch with Sophie, as played by Madeline Sparks. Judy played by Lucy Corrigan displayed immense characterisation of her hippy mother turning to drugs for relief. Daphne played by Amy Samber attempts to keep the home life together whilst all the upset and hurt is pouring out of the characters. Calliope (Charlotte Batten) Sophie's sister gets more and more frustrated with the prospects of her sister dying.
A most dramatic ending was displayed as Madeline displays her final thoughts in her ‘Notes to Her Future Self’.
