Duchess’s Community High School Senior Drama GroupNorthumberland Gazette gives more information:
The spirit of Emily Brontë's haunting novel is brought to exhilarating life in this stage adaptation performed by the talented DCHS Drama Group.
A passionate and spellbinding tale of forbidden love and revenge.
November 6,7 and 8 @7:30 pm
This adaptation, written by famous playwright April De Angelis (Playhouse Creatures), will be performed by the senior drama group and promises to be a thought-provoking piece of theatre.
The school’s head of English and drama, Martin Allenby, said: “This will be the school’s 14th consecutive autumn production at the Alnwick Playhouse and we can’t wait to showcase the talents of our young people to the wider public once again.
“The text is part of our work on the gothic that we prepare for in A2 English literature so fits well with our studies.
“However, most importantly it gives young people a chance to work in a professional space – be it on the stage, sound, lighting and to work with the Playhouse staff.
“It’s a continuation of the excellent working relationship that exists between the school and the Playhouse to provide the best opportunities for young people.”
