Box Clever's Clever Performance!

Romeo & Juliet (web)

Last Monday, Box Clever -a London-based theatre company- visited Northolt High School to perform Romeo and Juliet to our year 11 students. With a cast of three and a simple round stage, we entered the theatre with some scepticism: how on earth would the cast tell the whole story with only three members? Well- we needn’t have worried. The cast were marvellous and pulled off an amazing performance. The whole audience was gripped as the cast performed the classic tale of the “star-cross’d lovers”. 

Once the performance had finished, the cast members invited year 11 students to workshop with them; the workshop allowed students to get under the skin of the characters and Shakespeare’s words. With year 11 preparing for their final GCSE exams in English Literature and Drama, this experience proved invaluable and a very different way of revising! 

We were all so impressed with Box Clever’s performance that we have invited them back and they are going to return later in March to perform for our Year 10 students.
