U6 and L6 Aquinas Drama A level students have been back at the Theatre again; it’s been fantastic to get back into Manchester watching and supporting our amazing Manchester Theatres getting back to doing what they do so well! On 29th September L6 students visited ‘Home Theatre’ to watch an exciting and dynamic production of ‘War of the Worlds’ by Rhum and Clay Theatre Company. This was a brilliant multi-layered performance with extensive use of lighting, sound, projections and physical theatre work. On 13th October U6 students visited The Royal Exchange Theatre to watch ‘The Mountaintop’ by Katori Hall, directed by Roy Weise. This was a brilliant play a “laugh-out-loud, visceral and powerful drama which reimagines the eve of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and asks what the makings of a hero are”. The students really enjoyed the visits and studying these plays becomes an essential aspect of their core studies in the subject.
