This year’s Sixth Form performance received rave reviews as our senior dramatists entertained audiences with their production of Simon Stephens’ play Punk Rock.
Sixth Formers Dylan Little and Charlie Maddox provided superb creative input as they directed nine senior pupils from Hampton and Lady Eleanor Holles in Simon Stephens’ powerful contemporary drama.
Set in the library of a school in Stockport, Punk Rock tells the story of a group of angst ridden adolescents preparing for their mock exams, as they flirt, bully and pontificate through their final year at school. The production was cleverly accompanied by audio-visual clips that emphasised the menacing atmosphere and unravelling of the main characters.
The play’s directors, Dylan and Charlie, praised the cast for their hard work and commitment:
We’re really proud of the cast and how they managed to take on such a challenging play. It’s always exciting to see vision become reality and we, as directors, feel that they facilitated this brilliantly.
