A Man in Half-The Helix Dublin –Year 9 Loosely based on Jekyll and Hyde, year nine pupils came to school a little earlier than usual in order to make the journey to The Helix in Dublin. This one man show was thrilling from start to finish. Another interactive show in which audience participation was a must. The pupils did not know what to expect next from this crazy scientist and thoroughly enjoyed the show.
Year Eight-Heartbreak Soup Year Eights met Cuddy in the Down Arts Centre. Cuddy’s life is about to change. Right now he’s a blueberry blue boy, sick of pills and doctors. But once he’s pink, he’ll be running and jumping as much as he wants, and not just in his imagination. A kaleidoscope of live action, puppetry, humour and an all-encompassing soundscape, Heartbreak Soup is a magical tale for everyone that has a heart... or two. The play highlighted the strength and courage of transplant patients and explained the serious topic in a light hearted and sensitive way.

For many pupils it was their first experience of live theatre.
