After Liverpool

1 January 2017


Following hot on the heels of the whole School Musical ‘Prodigy’, staged with such exuberance and panache at the start of December, it was a pleasure for me to be involved with Directors India Spencer (Upper Sixth, Queen’s) and Florence Berner (Upper Sixth, Lyttelton) and their superb cast of fellow Upper Sixth actors in producing ‘After Liverpool’ by James Saunders.

This gripping and at times very challenging ‘adult’ piece was staged with imagination, simplicity and a good deal of style in the intimate surroundings of the Dobinson Studio Theatre on Friday 9 December. Two packed houses, made up of families, staff and Stoics were treated to some superb performances from Carleton Tufnel (Temple), Lucy Alderton (Stanhope), Florence Fox (Stanhope), Isabella Mullarkey (Stanhope), Isabel Avery (Lyttelton), Fabian Bevan (Grafton), Charles Granby (Grafton), Thomas Cowley (Bruce), Eliza Dubois (Nugent) and Annika Ormerod (Nugent). A huge congratulations to everyone involved in the production.
