On 13th of November, Miss Williams took Longfield Academy’s year 9 GCSE drama class to see a performance of DNA by Dennis Kelly with Quirky Bird Theatre. There were 28 students in attendance from Longfield, who were also joined by students from Wilmington, Stationers Crown Woods, and Strood academies. The trip will be used as part of the students’ work on ‘Writing About Performance’ in their Drama GCSE.
It was a truly fascinating performance, with masterful performances that the students were talking about the whole way home. They were particularly interested in the use of ensemble and physical theatre.
