Story House Triumph at House Drama Finals

The annual House Drama took place at the end of June with all eight Houses performing their plays to their House and Sister House during House Drama/Enterprise Day. There were an exciting range of pieces this year including Narnia, The Lovely Bones, Things I Know to be True, Cloud Busting, The Wizard of Oz, The Addams Family, Animal Farm and for the first time in the history of House drama, a play written by students.

Three of the best House plays directed by Sixth Form students were then selected to compete for the Shippam Trophy in the final of the 2022 House Drama Festival.

The finalists were:

  • George Orwell’s Animal Farm – Sherborne House, directed by Isobel Isobel Buckler and Wilf Kieran
  • Things I Know To Be True – Story House, directed by Lily Barkes and Jess Spencer
  • Cloud Busting – Burrows House, directed by Alex Webb and Amberley Norris

IMG 0635This event is not only a celebration of the incredible talent and creativity of students within the school but also of the dedication, passion and camaraderie that is nurtured through taking part in the Arts at Bishop Luffa.

During the finals, the students gave a taste of the professionalism and integrity that they bring to their work and we continue to be impressed by the standard that is achieved.

We are very pleased to welcome Toby Wilsher as our guest adjudicator. Toby trained at Middlesex University then co-founded Trestle Theatre Company in 1981. For 23 years he was an actor, writer, maker, designer and director for Trestle, seeing his work performed in 31 countries. Since 2004 Toby has worked as a freelance director, writer and corporate trainer.

Huge congratulations to Story House on winning this year’s House Drama with their adaptation of Things I Know to be True, their first win since 1988!

Thanks must also go to the Tech Team led by Mr Green, together with all the staff who helped put this event together.
