24th Sept 2018 – The Y12 French class and their teachers recently went to see a dramatisation of a one of their A-level texts in London.  Here Kemi, Kiara and Laura tell us about their experience …

On a busy Saturday evening we travelled into London’s Notting Hill Gate to watch a play called “l’étranger”, which translates to “the outsider”. The play took place in a small but quaint and highly decorated theatre which was deceiving from the outside: endless flights of stairs and twisting corridors lit with red lights added much to the mystery of the theatre! The set was simple yet effective. Although the play was lengthy at three hours, it was worth every second as every minute detail had clearly been refined to perfection. There were shocking moments as well as heart stopping scenes, where you really felt as though the characters really had been brought to life! All in all it was a wonderful evening and we would highly recommend the play.  We have no doubt that the novel will be equally exciting to study in the near future!
