On 24th April, 20 Lower Sixth English Literature students travelled to Richmond Theatre to see a stage adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray.
The evening was a fantastic opportunity for students to see an interpretation of a text they are studying as part of the Literature coursework component, and Richmond Theatre’s impressive and ornate Victorian architecture made it the perfect venue to experience the work of the Victorian era’s most popular and enduring Decadent writer. The performance was an interesting take on the novel, with an appropriately elaborate set and many innovative stage effects.
English teacher Will Rowley commented: “The students really appreciated the outing and it has given them plenty of ideas for the coursework they will write at the beginning of their Upper Sixth year.”
