Drama & Dance

In ‘Wild’, inspired by David Almond’s script ‘Wild Boy, Wild Girl’, Elaine deals with grief and anxiety following the death of her father.

As Elaine fights her own demons the cruel and often ignorant judgements of others serve to remind us that our society still has a long way to go in its understanding of and response to mental health difficulties. Exploring challenging subjects such as grief and mental health was not easy but I was extremely proud of my young company who approached the process with sensitivity, maturity and commitment. Nicki Edwards - Director, Trent College

“Not only was the subject matter, but also the level of acting and set design, was that of what I would expect from a professional production” Louis Harrison – Year 10

“Wild ran extremely smoothly, it was an outstanding performance and I couldn’t hear anything but positive praise from the audience which included prestigious school members such at Mr Cowie and Mr & Mrs Penty”  Ben Slessor – Year 10 Front of House Manager

“I thought that the overall level of maturity backstage was amazing! It reflected in their brilliant performances and every person in the cast was great to work with.” Lauren Heap – Year 10 Hair and Make-Up

“I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Working backstage with such a high performing, professional and well behaved young cast was really encouraging and I look forward to witnessing them shape the future of Trent drama for years to come.” Dom Woodhead – Year 10 Stage Manager
