Sixth Form Drama Trip

On Tuesday evening the Tormead A Level Drama students got to watch the fantastic physical theatre company, GECKO, perform their new hard-hitting show Kin at the National Theatre. Based on the story of the grandmother of Amit Lahav, Artistic Director of Gecko, the play reflects on the life-changing decision his family made to flee Yemen and build a better life in Palestine.

The story focuses on Leah and her family and their journey to escape persecution. Kin is a provocative story of desperation, compassion and acceptance, inspired by the migration stories of Gecko’s international performers and the extraordinary voyage Leah undertook as a young child. The Sixth Form students were blown away by a truly mesmerising display of physical theatre that was thought-provoking, powerful and inspiring.
