In November, our Year 11 English Literature pupils had the pleasure to watch Blood Brothers on Stage at the Hippodrome. Pupils had the true experience of being an active audience, enabling them to appreciate the musicality and craft behind the stage production. All pupils reflected positively on this experience, taking away key ideas regarding social inequality and injustice in society.
Since the start of the academic year, Year 10’s have indulged in a modern-prose play ‘Blood Brothers’ set in Liverpool in the 1970s. They’ve explored the plot and the dynamics of characters such as Mickey and Edward and how the author conveys them, as well as other characters in the play. They’ve gone back in time to explore how the social and political issues affected the path the two brothers took; eventually leading to their demise.
