SEC: British Literature in a New Light
As the year winds down, students in British Literature have just wrapped up a drama unit asking them to recreate a scene or act from a British drama. Once again, students rose to the challenge, creating some memorable works of art. An Inspector Calls, Pygmalion, Dr. Faustus, and The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, classics of the genre, have been given new life by these students. Far more than merely acting out the dramas, students applied elements of drama like space, movement, and voice to create tension and suspense. Additionally, local talent was employed. Special thanks to Mr. Tempel for his inspirational performance. Here are screen shots from three of the submissions. The fourth, Dr. Faustus was created as a radio drama.
