School Play ‘Divided City’ – Summer Term 2015
In July, our students performed the play ‘Divided City’, written by Theresa Breslin, adapted by Martin Travers and performed with the permission of Knight Hall Agency Ltd.
The play is about a city divided by religion, race, wealth and…..football! Joe and Graham are from two different sides of the city but both want to play football for the same team – Glasgow City – but when Graham witnesses a violent attack on an asylum seeker called Katya, this changes everything as the two boys are drawn into keeping Katya’s secret and helping her and her friend Leanne. The play is set in Glasgow and has the sectarian divisions between the Catholic and Protestant communities there at its heart. As a cast we knew that telling the story of these divisions was important but we have also come to realise that the story of the city of Glasgow is the story of many cities, towns and communities across the world and that the story of how Graham, Joe, Katya and Leanne find their own way forward in a world divided by difference is also our story.
A new Community Choir, meeting every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm at the school, is soon to be launched. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of singing together.
The first gathering will take place on Tuesday 28 November in the Music block. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the school on 01246 273985 or by email: email@example.com.
The Carol Concert will take place on Monday 18 December at Hasland Methodist Church, commencing at 7.00pm. Tickets are available from the school.
