In keeping with our cross curricular theme of Technology this session, the setting of the play is stylistically inspired by 1960s Futurism. This is a great chance explore, examine and interpret the important creative and intellectual themes in Havel’s work, offering an important insight into the philosophy of our Founder Patron as a playwright.

Drama and Art students are collaborating – with Year 5 Artists contributing to the set design.
