The last week of the Michaelmas term saw the Classics Department put on a junior production of Sophocles’ Elektra, translated and directed by Mr Phillip Canning, Head of Classics.
Brought into the modern era with a set depicting a mid-twentieth century terraced street, the play told the story of the revenge Elektra wanted to get on her mother for murdering her father when he returned from the Trojan War.
Katya Goodwin gave an outstanding and mature performance as Elektra, ably supported by Millie Ngai-Lenoir, Jasmin Deans and George Tomsett, amongst others.
All three performances were very well attended by pupils, staff, parents and other visitors. On arrival at the Le Brocq theatre audience members were greeted with appetising Greek snacks!
