In this production, year 8 had to depict parts of our Greenford High School Heroes’ (Aristotle, Brunel, Curie, Dickens, Escher, Fitsgerald, Gavaskar, Hawking) lives. My class played out different parts of M.C Escher’s life. I played Escher’s Secondary School art teacher. He was supposed to be very bad at art in his young age so he was shouted at and humiliated.
One of the best actors was Mamduh. He played the father of a pregnant teenager in Dickens’ life. He showed great passion and anger in his performance and this was so realistic that we felt sorry for Caitlin who was playing his pregnant daughter.
The performance was very good overall, and I hope to repeat an activity like this again sometime.
