On  Tuesday, 2nd November, Years 11 and 12 attended

AN ENGLISH TEA PARTY
(or Hitler Killed My Canary)

at the Ruhrfestspiele in Recklinghausen.

The play has been performed by TNT theatre, an international touring theatre who have taken their motto TRAGEDY WITH A SMILE ON ITS LIPS from Meyerhold, a Soviet director who was murdered by Stalin. We can only say the morning was well spent, and despite all tragedy many people had a smile on their lips when they left. David Marks (Kneel down, Neil), Sonja Morgenstern (Anna), Eric Tessier Lavigne (Dead, no, Dad) and a somewhat soft-spoken mother kept us amused and taught us a lot about melody and harmony :-)
