“With the onset of social media, bullying has risen to new levels of intensity and this intensity can sometimes lead to horrific acts of violence. Shedding light on the consequences of these violent acts and where the violence stems from was my purpose in writing this play. Youth theatre is powerful. And, I believe, it is important to channel that power to educate, inspire and create a dialogue on the “not so simple” subjects that our youth are facing today.” ~ From the Author, Rachel Lopez
As part of the term 2 curriculum students studied the play through script analysis and had the opportunity to see this well written piece of work come to life on stage. Overall it was a great experience for the students and reflecting on the night gave them an opportunity to revisit their personal goals in Drama.
Please also look forward to our own Drama production on the 14th of December, where you will be able to see the students show off their own talents, knowledge and skills in a festival of short plays called “A bunch of plays”. We hope to see you there!
