Ms Bromley’s Year 10 Drama students did an excellent job last week of performing ‘The Acharnians’ by Aristophanes (C. 447 – 385 BC). This unit of performance gives the students a direct appreciation of the 1st Golden Age of Theatre as well as an understanding of ancient times and cultures. Only 11 of Aristophanes plays survive. ‘The Acharnians’ is an anti-war comedy that pleads for peace, set in Athens during the great wars of Sparta. Living in peace is actively and comically compared to living in war time, particularly during the mocking scenes with the Ambassadors and Lamachus. Students who took part include: Damian Albertson, Harrison Berenger, Jesse Bowen, Courtney Dillow, Jared Hargreaves, Ben Jose, Sarah Lockwood, Mik- haila Lovett, Laura Mc Millan, Bridie Naughtin & Hazel Vaughan.
