On Wednesday 29th January Box Clever Theatre came
in to school to do a workshop production of exam text An Inspector Calls.
Performing 3 times to all year 11 and selected year 10 students, they provided
an alternative view of the characters, their motivations and the message JB
Priestley was trying to convey.
Performing selected scenes that highlighted the characters
attitudes and viewpoints gave a perspective that was both original and
thought-provoking. Students were pushed out of their comfort-zones by being
asked to get up to perform lines with the actors. Fahim Azim truly ‘stepped up
to the plate’ by volunteering to be Mr Birling.
