Lights, Camera, Murder?

At King’s, we like to give our drama scholars the chance to showcase their theatrical talents, and every year, they entertain guests in ever-more creative ways.

This year, they decided to put a colourful twist on the classic murder mystery narrative, bringing some of film and literature’s most beloved characters to life in an evening of dramatic revelry.

The play, which was loosely based on Agatha Christie’s bestselling crime-novel And Then There Were None, saw many characters face their demise as it is revealed a killer is among them. Luckily, the audience members were quick to discover that the disgruntled villain was the true villain!

Head of Drama, Harriet Agg-Manning, said: “It was a highly enjoyable evening that really showcased the talents that our scholars possess.”

Colder Than Here

Colder Than Here

British playwright Laura Wade’s debut play, Colder Than Here, follows the story of Myra, a woman dying of bone cancer, and her family, who are coming to terms with her impending death.

The script forms part of the A level curriculum, and despite its difficult subject matter, has captured the hearts of our Lower Sixth. Performing it as part of their Lent Term production not only helped them to revise the text, ready for the summer exam, but also enabled them to work closely with the Upper Sixth drama scholars who had studied the play last year.

The final production was beautifully acted and poignantly relatable, mainly due to the intermittent moments of comedy. The pupils performed it with sensitivity and flair, bringing gentility to an otherwisehard-hitting piece of theatre.

Our next Open Day will be taking place on Saturday 5 October 2019 at 10.00am.

Open Days are an ideal way of looking around a school to see if you think this might be the one for you and your child. Our pupils play a huge part in the success of these days and thoroughly enjoy showing prospective families around their school.
