‘Spreading the News’

A cast of ten from Forms Primary to III took on the Junior Play this term and only had a two and a half week period to rehearse and produce the whole endeavour. Spreading the News by Lady Gregory pokes gentle fun at small town gossiping and the Irish love of a dramatic bit of creative storytelling. It was directed by Evan Jameson and Ronan Swift (who had a little cameo performance) with the actors playing in barefoot on a sawdust strewn BSR floor. The short one act play proved popular amongst the pupils, staff and visitors. There is a really positive cohort of young and willing performers in the junior school as evidenced in the form plays in September and also this weekend – the future seems bright! Below are a selection of photos taken over the three nights of performance by Rev. Daniel Owen.
