Students in Years 7-9 have devised a brand new piece of theatre that looks at the impact of the Second World War on a wide variety of children’s lives, including evacuees, Anne Frank and children of Nazi officers. It is called Labelled as the play takes as one of its central themes the labels tied onto the evacuees, the yellow stars worn by the Jews and the swastika armbands of the Hitler Youth.
We have taken inspiration from a wide range of sources including novels such as Carrie’s War by Nina Bawden and The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne, photographs, propaganda, letters from evacuees and poetry from the period.
Labelled will be performed in the Harry Crook Theatre on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th June at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £4 and £3 and will be on sale from 1.30pm-2pm from Monday 22nd June – Friday 26th June in Bishop’s Palace, and will also be available on the door.
