The Monstrum (March 2017)
Year 9 have been performing The Monstrum, a gothic melodrama about the terrifying onset of adolescence. It’s a new play by Kellie Smith and our production is part of the National Theatre Connections 2017. We performed it at the academy at the end of March, and then took our production to the HOME arts centre in Manchester city centre on Wednesday 26 April. At HOME, the play’s writer Kellie Smith came to watch our students and praised their performance.
