Audiences fall in love with the Classics Play

This year’s Classics Play was extremely well received with performances to captivated sell-out audiences.

The play, entitled “Love”, was a reworking of Sophocles’ Women of Trachis and Euripides’ Alcestis and came from the mind of Head of Classics, Mr Thorley.

Now in its eleventh year, the play was accompanied with an exhibition. As the Greeks had six different words for love, pupils were encouraged to consider how we think about love in the modern world with their work going on display.

Additionally, rapper, beatboxer and Blake scholar “Testament” visited the school as William Blake’s romantic poetry is included in the play. “Testament” entertained pupils in Lower School assembly, spoke at Symposium in the library and played host as pupils got to deliver a poem about Stockport to mark “Blake Day”.

Thanks to everyone who got involved – and we look forward to seeing what is in store for next year!
