Drama students enjoy Metamorphosis

On 24 January sixth form drama students went to see Metamorphosis at the Lyric Hammersmith. The play had a very mixed reception. The set was ingenious, and the ending was unanimously liked as the use of a modern circus discipline and strong lighting cut to the very core of even the sturdiest of dispositions. The story is about the lengths to which a family will go to fit in and the astonishing betrayal that is entailed within that. Gregor’s transformation was expertly portrayed by Gísli Örn Garðarsson as the man who turns into a bug and his sister was chillingly well played by Nína Dögg Filippusdóttir.
