Living With The War

13th November 2018

The theatre group ‘as creatives Ltd’ performed ‘Living with the War’ for all of the children this week.  The play followed the lives of people from the fictional town of Puddington, from the start of the First World War through to its end.  The interactive performance, set both in the town itself and on the Front Line, was packed with historical detail, a fair slice of humour, and of course plenty of thought-provoking, and at times, very moving drama.
 
The actors, Helen and Jay, were blown away by the children’s knowledge on the subject as they presented the Question and Answer session after the performance. They felt that throughout the discussions, the children had a good understanding of the cause and effect of both world wars, demonstrating excellent history skills.
