Noughts and Crosses at Derby Theatre

On Thursday 14th February Year 11 GCSE students visited Derby Theatre to see a performance of Noughts and Crosses.


The purpose of this trip was to give the students a chance to see provocative, compelling work in a professional context as they work towards a written theatre review - a significant part of their GCSE.


The performance of Noughts and Crosses was a brave, gripping Romeo and Juliet story, based on the best-selling novel by acclaimed writer Malorie Blackman and adapted by Sabrina Mahfouz. It was a captivating drama of love, revolution and what is means to grow up in a divided world. 


The students represented the school is a mature and respectful manner and were very impressed with the cast and production.
