Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor students visit the theatre after a 2 year break

Students from Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor Drama and English Department went on a theatre trip to Theatre Clwyd and Galeri recently.

This was the first opportunity in two years for students to see live performances . Students were engrossed by the bold new revival of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer prizewinning Cat on a Hot Tin Roof a co-production between English Touring Theatre, Curve and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse.

Holly Jones, A-level student at the Pwllheli campus commented: “I personally really enjoyed the play. I found the minimalistic way in which it was presented was very effective, as the focus was purely on the play and the story itself, not the props.”

The play explores what it takes to survive in a society were we all want to feel free and yet are tied by society's constraints. Students are studying William's “A Streetcar Named Desire” and Arthur Miller's “A view from a Bridge” for AS level which have similar themes and generated a lively discussion.

Megan Thomas, A Level student at Pwllheli said

“The play was brilliant to watch, the complexity of the characters such as Brick as presented by the cast made the play incredibly interesting”
