I took my Year 10 and Year 11 Drama classes to see Point of No Return in Griffith on 26th July 2019, for the Schools performance. The students were absolutely in awe from when they first sat down to the Q & A at the end of the performance. The fact of it being Verbatim resonated with the students as we teach this style of theatre throughout Stage 5 & 6. The Q & A afterwards including the writer/director was eye opening for the students especially in regard to a piece ‘never really being finished’.
The actors were candid with the students and offered them sound advice about performing as well as devising (it is always good for them to hear it from other voices instead of their teacher).
As a teacher I felt the whole event was worth about a month’s worth of teaching.
I was extremely glad I bothered with the hassle of organizing an Excursion – truly worthwhile!
A fabulous piece of intimate theatre highlighting some very multi-talented performers (and Writers).
