The Bad Apple

Congratulations to our TY students who have just completed a two night run of specially commissioned drama, 'The Bad Apple', by playwright and former Villiers student Maeve Stone. Over 80 students participated, many of them treading the boards for the first time.

Stone's play shines a humorous light on science and technology, whilst exploring the moral dilemma of the loss of meaningful, face-to-face communication. Our budding actors embraced the sentiment of the plot and successfully brought Stone's work off the page under the guidance of directors, Ann Blake and Niamh Bowen.

What another great achievement and experience for our TYs. We are certain that a number of them have been bitten by the acting bug and look forward to the next time they open the grease-paint.
