8L 'Love' Drama

Posted: 28th February 2019


Valentines Day was a day of romance at Dulwich Prep London, and the boys of 8L showed that the L in their name stood for Love! Turning the Concert Hall into a French bistro with couples all on first dates, the boys presented a complex patchwork quilt of work with confidence, strength and inventive collaboration. Bringing to life many famous romantic poems, the boys gave renditions of “Crush” by Victoria Wood, “A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning” by John Donne, “Valentine” by Carol Ann Duffy and even the most famous of all love poems, Lord Byron’s “She Walks In Beauty”. Tied into this were delightful renditions of famous romantic scenes from Four Weddings And A Funeral, Titanic, Love Actually, as well as more classic pieces of drama including Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, Ionesco’s “The Bald Prima Donna” and Chekhov’s “The Seagull”, and a few pieces of comedy from Monty Python and Blackadder thrown in for good measure. With some boys taking the part of girls in an unabashed, confident way, the room was filled with love, love was all around, and all you needed was love – what a gift for their parents!
