On Monday 8 February the Matrics of 2016 attended an outdoor performance of Othello by William Shakespeare at the Maynardville theatre in Wynberg. 105 of our learners attended and they all agree that it was an amazing experience.
Set in the historic outdoor theatre in Maynard Park, this is the 60th performance of a Shakespeare play in this beautiful tree-lined auditorium. The lead actors, especially those playing the roles of Othello -the Moor of Venice -, Iago, Emilia and the tragic Desdemona, were superb and skilfully brought the play to life.
Although we only returned to school at 11.00pm that night, everyone agreed that it was a very worthwhile experience – especially being able to meet and have a photo opportunity with some of the lead actors after the performance!
