All the world's a stage?

On 25 February Sixth Form students from the Classical Civilisation and Theatre Studies groups travelled to Manchester to watch the comedy Lysistrata by Aristophanes as part of their A level courses.

This was a new an updated production by the Actors of Dionysus company. It was vibrant, topical and very funny and helped both groups to appreciate the classical world in a new light.

At the end of the performance the Birkdale students were allowed up on the stage to examine the set.

The journey back to Sheffield was via Barnsley where the Theatre Studies group stopped off to watch another innovative production. This time Macbeth performed by only two actors!

Such dedication !
