The Suitcase Series - Malthouse Theatre

 

 

This term, year 9 drama students participated in the Malthouse Theatre's unique educational program called The Suitcase Series. The Malthouse had commisioned a play on the topic of climate change. The play was called TURBINE and it was written by Dan Giovannoni. The challenge for the students was to interpret this script and present a 20-minute performance on the Matlhouse stage, in front of five other schools. It was a wonderful experience for the students but also stressful at times.


The students had the opportunity to see four other schools perform their interpretation of the script and then see the professional production of TURBINE. It was wonderful to see twenty students on the Malthouse stage proudly presenting their adaptation of the play on climate change.
