Year 11 Trip - The play that goes wrong

Year 10/11 Drama GCSE Trip – ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ at The Duchess Theatre.

 On Wednesday 13th December, 18 GCSE Drama students from Year 10 and 11 went to the theatre to watch ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’. The play was a comedy performed and devised by the Mischief Theatre Company. A drama society was putting on a ‘1920’s murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does! The accident prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences!’ It was a fantastic opportunity for student to be exposed to a different style of performance and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The fact that the theatre was small made it an intimate experience. Even before the play had ‘begun’ the actors were amongst the audience, which us feel a part of the play. The staging and set design was dynamic and offered many surprises, which kept us on the edge of our seat throughout.

The theatre trip was really fun. We walked through Covent Garden to get there and got an opportunity to admire the lights. When the play started we were laughing constantly. The actors broke the fourth wall, which made it more fun as we felt like we were a part of it. Everyone really enjoyed the performance.

I had a really good time on the theatre trip. It was nice to see the sights of central London on the way to theatre. I found the play really funny. My favourite character was Cecil Colleymoore. The actor had convincing characterisations and would make the audience laugh without even talking through his physical movements and facial expressions. It is the best play I have seen and kept me laughing throughout.
