Emil and the Detective at The National Theatre
On Tuesday, 25 February 2014, the Drama Department took a group of sixth form students to see the acclaimed production of ‘Emil and the Detective’ at the National Theatre. This fulfils the obligation of students to review live theatre as part of their Drama course work, and also provided a fun evening in London. ‘Emil and the Detective’ is a classic tale of a boy learning to rely on himself – and on his new friends. The stage at the Olivier had been transformed into 1920s Berlin: “a place full of surprises and danger, where everything moves at the speed of your imagination". Thank you to Mrs Gooden for organising the visit.
