An evening at The National Theatre

An evening at The National Theatre

Before the half term break, the A-Level Drama pupils had an evening at The National Theatre to see Larry Kramer’s ‘The Normal Heart,’ a story of love, activism and anger set during the 1980s AIDS crisis in New York, described as “poignant and powerful” by the Guardian. It was a real treat to be back seeing live theatre, and for some of the pupils this was their first time at The National which made it particularly special! The Normal Heart was an incredible moving show which will stick in all of our minds. The Sixth Formers had this to say about the show:

“It was inspiring”

“It gave me insight into how AIDS impacted individuals and allowed us to connect to the characters”

“I felt angry and outraged at the injustice portrayed”

“I felt like I was watching someone push a boulder up a hill and it just kept rolling back onto them”
