School Plays

There is a Primary Division Major Production and a Senior School Major Production. School Plays draw on the best acting talent throughout the School regardless of age or House. Directed by a Master, they aim to draw the School together around the shared experience of a great — or greatly entertaining — piece of theatre. Productions are responsive to contemporary developments in the theatre. They tend to be large scale, as they seek to address large issues, as well as to make the fullest use of the talents available. It is important that the School Productions do not become the preserve of a single director and conscious efforts are made to develop directorial skills in the school to enable more theatrical voices to be heard. Budgets are on a par with those of comparable schools, although tickets are always free.

The PD Boys Play

The Primary Division mounts one Major Production a year. This is to give the younger boys a chance to extend themselves. Technical support is given by younger members of the Stage Crew, for whom this is often an opportunity to take charge of their own work for the first time. Nevertheless these are School events attracting large audiences, and they draw on the best talents both on stage and behind the scenes that the age group can provide.

The Senior School Major Production

The Senior School mounts a Major Production once a year. The aim is to stimulate new dramatic writing and to give it the same value and attention as the established plays that make up most of our repertoire. The Major Production has the same budget as the school play it replaces, is staged by our top production teams, and performed by the best actors in the school.
