Last night, the six houses led by their dedicated lower sixth production teams performed to a spellbound audience in the Collyer Hall Theatre, provoking rip-roaring laughter and emotion in equal measure.
Layton’s Giles Barron offered a side-splitting performance of Black Comedy with utter joy, impressive theatrical discipline and skill; Kingsley delivered a challenging and poignant original piece of writing with a standout performance from Jack Cowdery; Glenesk kept the audience in stitches with their transient love circle; Maclear stunned audiences with their crafting of the iconic film ‘The Odd Couple’; Alverstone carefully and expertly played on our emotions; and Major triumphantly closed the evening with a beautifully adapted ensemble piece with every performance a standout.
The evening was a sensational success, and a true tribute to the collaboration and dedication of the talented King’s students.
