Widnes pupils bring rare Shakespeare play to life
7:30am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
AN innovative interpretation of a rarely performed Shakespeare tragedy has been performed by talented Widnes pupils.
Students at The Bankfield School in Liverpool Road staged ‘Titus Andronicus’ at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre as part of the annual Shakespeare Schools Festival.
The production linked the violence in the play to issues about video nasties and computer games corrupting influence Paul Kennedy, head of drama, said: ”For the cast to not only understand such a difficult text but also interpret it in such a creative manner and then perform with such professionalism is absolutely brilliant.
“Myself and the school are so proud of them.”
This was the school's eight production for the festival and the cast of 13 consisted of pupils from Years nine to 11.
They are now working on a new interpretation of Frankenstein in ‘The Modern Prometheus’, which will be performed at the Brindley Studio on Saturday, March 1, 2014.
