Shakespeare in the Master’s Garden

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.

We were so excited to be able to hold a live performance of Shakespeare in the Master’s Garden on the Thursday before half term. The select audience of Year 9 parents, plus many more watching the live stream, were treated to performances from some of Shakespeare’s best-known plays, as well as scenes from other classic writers.  Hal opened the evening as Benvolio from Romeo and Juliet, and amongst the other highlights was Maddie as a simmering Macbeth, whilst Baxter delighted as Launce from The Two Gentlemen of Verona arguing with his (toy) dog!  The final scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, performed by Year 9 students added more laughter to the evening.

The weather held, the garden looked beautiful, and the acting was superb – all in all a wonderful way to celebrate the return of live performance!
