This past week the Senior Drama Company 2017 staged their production of “Do We Ever See Grace?” by Noel Grieg. What a joy it was to see this wonderful group of students work collaboratively to bring this beautiful piece of writing to the stage. Full of deep commentary on the state of British society and governance in the 1980s, the play still resonates today with the issues of war, homelessness, inequality and unstable governance in many parts of the world.
Congratulations must go to all the performers, the design and stage team, the lighting operator, and the musicians for their invaluable contributions. Particular congratulations to Ms Hadewych Dujardin, for her work with composers and musicians, and especially Mr Jon Suffolk who worked tirelessly to organise the event.
This production was the first time students from IGBIS composed the musical score and it was thrilling to see it performed live along with the play. After just 13 rehearsals this production was a great success and we thank all those who came along in support.
Congratulations to all involved.
