CXYP Seniors present: Sparkle Shark and Our Day Out
Saturday, June 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£7 - £10
CXYP’s Senior Classes present an evening of one act plays.
S1 Present “Sparkleshark” by Philip Ridley.
Fourteen-year-old Jake, the classroom ‘geek’, takes refuge on the roof of a tower block in order to write his stories. Before long other young people join him and the taunting begins. Although at first he endeavours to hide, he learns to fight back in the only way he knows how – storytelling. Soon the whole group is enmeshed in the story, enacting a fantastic tale which resonates with the dynamics of their own friendships and enmities.
S2-6 Present “Our Day Out” by Willy Russell
This is an account of a school trip for students from a remedial class: hilarious, chaotic and lively, but tinged with the suggestion that the disadvantaged children have little else to look forward to. Mrs Kay’s ‘Progress Class’ are unleashed for a day’s coach trip to Conway Castle in Wales, stopping off at the café, the zoo, the beach and the funfair, the children taking advantage of the numerous opportunities to bicker, fool around, steal and get lost. Russell presents an exuberant celebration of the joys and agonies of growing up and being footloose, fourteen and free from school.
Both shows are recommended for audiences aged 12 or above
This amateur production of “Our Day Out (Play Version)” and “Sparkleshark” is presented by special arrangement by Samuel French LTD a Concord Theatricals Company.
