A Level Drama pupils tackle their ‘Exploring and Performing Texts’ assessment, carrying 20% of the available marks for the A Level. Learners must take a published text and apply the theories and practice of an established theatre company or practitioner, with clear artistic intentions to communicate meaning to the audience. Similarly to the GCSE, this exam represents the apex of their performance assessment as A Level pupils and is embellished with the full technical support of the department including lighting, sound, set costume and props. Recent past performance exams have included work by Martin McDonnagh, James Graham, Polly Stennham, Caryl Churchill and Amelia Bullmore, featuring the theories and styles of practitioners including Antonin Artaud, Bertolt Brecht, Konstantin Stanislavski and Frantic Assembly. An exciting and impressive evening of performance is assured.
Open to all.
