Theatre Trip: 'An Inspector Calls'

JB Priestleys classic thriller ...

Across Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 November, 100 Year 11 students attended Stephen Daldry's touring production of An Inspector Calls at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford. 

This was a fantastic opportunity for students to watch one of the texts they have been studying for GCSE English Literature in performance. The intriguing set design involving a large house which opened itself up to the audience, as well as the rain and fog onstage, drew the students into the performance immediately. This unusual staging enhanced the students' understanding of the key themes of the play. Along with the acting performances, this has made for some wonderful class discussions about the presentation of the characters and the message of the play.
