In the play a peaceful English idyll is shattered by a bizarre murder. Who’s the guilty party? What have apples to do with it? And why are the townspeople so obsessed with a pot plant?
At the Welwyn Youth Drama Festival the adjudicator said it was a performance ‘without blemish’ and praised the show (awarding it First Prize in the Senior section), the individual performances and the outstanding work by the chorus (which also won the Adjudicator’s Award).
We were then invited to open the main Welwyn Drama Festival on Monday 22nd and won the Adjudicator’s Award in that competition too, again for the outstanding Chorus work. Dawn, our wonderful director, was also nominated as Best Director.
What an outstanding success story. And there’s more to come from the gang son with ‘The Birds’ shortly to grace the Roman Ampthitheatre of Verulamium!
