After numerous late nights of rehearsals, the exciting new production, Stolen Secrets by British dramatist Fin Kennedy  was performed on the 13 and 15 May.
Opening night was exciting and nerve-racking in the beginning. A little way into the performance, however, nerves were gone and fierce pride in our achievement was our reward. Closing night brought a mix of emotions as the excitement dissolved into the air once more. The determination (felt by the whole cast) to make the last time on stage together count was tangible. For the matrics, the consciousness that it was our last time performing on the school stage brought a profound sadness, but this was mixed with the joy we felt when we received a standing ovation.
The audiences on both occasions were receptive, engaged, and pleasure to perform for.
The play explored issues in an artistic way, combining East London street slang with verse,  and demanding talent and versatility from the entire cast.  The play was imaginatively executed and boldly conveyed – something that Penny Glover’s direction never fails to deliver. Bravo – to Penny Glover and her cast.
