Blithe Spirit “play in a week” is resounding success
Despite having less than a week to learn their lines and stage the show, our lower sixth form’s production of Blithe Spirit was a resounding success.
Noel Coward’s classic comic tale of an eccentric clairvoyant inadvertently summoning a novelist’s ex-wife was performed outdoors in the Sixth Form quad by a cast of Elle Harper, Tom Fawcett, Sam Allport, Natalie Clarke, Alice Carr, Jamie Rahman and Martha Watson.
Even though the day’s earlier thunderstorms threatened to disrupt proceedings, the clouds parted in time for the play with only a swirling wind offering a metrological threat – which our cast dealt with admirably!
Despite the pupils’ AS Level exams giving them less than seven days to develop the production, the cast put on a brilliant performance which left the audience of pupils, parents, staff and governors delighted.
