The boys in the Junior Company created a piece of very moving drama, around the historical 'truce' between German and Allied soldiers during WW1. It featured stories of home, family and friends as well as memories of Christmas' passed. It also portrayed the human cost of WW1, how it tragically tore families apart on both sides.
The boys knew going into this piece that it had to be done well, to show respect for the lives lost during the conflict. They stayed true to their word, producing a moving work which moved many audience members to tears. It reminded us all to be thankful for their sacrifice and also the relative peace in which we live our lives in this country.
In start contrast to the boys, this girls went down the comic route, providing some much needed comic relief after the first performance. The story centred around a typical family Christmas, capturing all the anxieties, problems, fights and make ups which Christmas sometimes brings out. We also witnessed the introduction of the new boyfriend to the family, which helped to end the show with a shock proposal and an answer of "Erm.....Brussel sprouts?!"
Like any good comedy should, it had the audience laughing along from start to finish. A brilliant script written entirely by the group, very well done girls.
