Mayfield's very own Murder Mystery!

Last week, Caedmon - Mayfield's prestigious senior drama group - performed 'Before the Ink was Dry', a darkly comic murder mystery written by our talented Sixth Formers.  Towards the end of last year, the Caedmon group decided that they would like to develop their own play. They brainstormed ideas for the plot and used improvisation to devise characters. After they came up with a concept, along with what 'type' of character each would like to play, Evie and Elizabeth in Year 13 co-wrote the dialogue. It was a collaborative exercise that resulted in a one-off performance last Wednesday. It was set in the Courtyard and, although the cast are not used to being in such close proximity to an audience, they were not at all distracted. In fact, they each played their character with clarity and focus. The play deserved the enthusiastic response that it received from the audience. Congratulations to all those involved!
