English Department - Drama


So many times pupils say in their Drama Critical Essay "The play I have read...." when it would be much better to say "The play I have seen in live performance....". Well this part of our English Zone makes it easy for you to discover that culture isn't just something Mrs Ogg grows in Biology - it's out there - in our theatres - go and get some! (NB Most theatres don't "do" popcorn but they generally "do" ice cream and sweeties.)

To find out "what's on" check the following links:

If you think that there would be enough interest in a particular production to merit a class or year group theatre outing, then speak to your English teacher about it.

Some previous theatre outings:
Romeo & Juliet at the King's Theatre, Glasgow.
Othello at the King's Theatre Glasgow
