Year 11 Drama students went to Scarborough recently to see the revival of the Confusions by Alan Ayckbourn at the Stephen Joseph Theatre.

Confusions is the set text for the GCSE Unit 3 written exam. As well as seeing the play, students also had a tour of the theatre’s backstage area and had a demonstration of stage combat techniques and stunts in the theatre’s ‘in the round’ performance space. An actor workshop then explored relationships and comic timing in the play and how to perform to an audience that completely surrounds an actor on all sides. Selfies with cast members and autographed scripts were also an added bonus for a lucky few in our party!
