Drama trip – ‘The Plough and the Stars’
Thirty Lower Sixth English Literature students visited Cambridge Arts Theatre on Friday 5th October to see the Abbey’s Theatre’s acclaimed production of Sean O’Casey’s The Plough and the Stars.
The play’s focus on the emotional impact of the Easter 1916 uprising in Dublin forms a useful contextual backdrop to the poetry of W.B. Yeats studied as part of the AS English Literature course.
Students and staff alike were bowled over by the power and intensity of this extraordinary production.
