Dragonfly Present: DNA

May 17th, 2016 | Creative Arts School News

As the curtain closes on this year’s Dragonfly Sixth Performing Arts course, students chose to take on one more challenge by staging Dennis Kelly’s controversial and dark tale, DNA,  a play that highlights the murkier side of society and the conflict between right and wrong.

Working with Drama Teacher, Amanda Miles, students produced the dark tale in just weeks, learning lines, building sets and producing the show ready for their eager audience.

Year 13 student and Set Designer, Rose Toner, commented:

‘ Dennis Kelly’s plays always show the very best and worst of what humans are capable of and  with everything going on around the world today it was really interesting to study human behaviour in such detail.’

Acting Head of Drama, Maddy Flagg, said:

‘ DNA is a very intense and thought-provoking show and the students’ performances were outstanding. We must say a big thank you to Mrs Miles who stepped in to direct the show at the last minute. Our staff always go above and beyond to support and bring out the very best in our students and Mrs Miles certainly did that.’
