In the final weeks of the Summer Term the Performing Arts Hall was transformed into a traverse theatre space representing a derelict garage, a family home, a bus, a school, a mysterious attic and a garden filled with the sounds of birdsong. From the moment the audience entered the space they were immersed into the world of Skellig, an Angel trapped on earth in a garage at the end of the garden. The play explored family, love, and redemption using the backdrop of a family’s fear of losing a child.
The cast and crew were wonderful and performed with emotional honesty and a real commitment to tell the story truthfully. Their response when dealing with a sensitive and complex plot showed real maturity beyond their years. They produced a professional and impressive captivating performance. This was possible due to their enthusiasm in rehearsals and love of being creative, for which they should be very proud. One of the catch cries in the story is "extraordinary," and this adjective is especially applicable to the cast and crew, a true ensemble in every way. Thank you so much to Lisa Lee, Mrs Punter and Mr Rye for their wonderful creativity in helping make this production so multi layered and beautiful.
