King Lear – 6th Years
On Tuesday the 6th of October forty Leaving Cert year students accompanied by their English teachers Ms. Behan and Ms. Murray went to The Helix Theatre in Dublin to watch the performance of the Shakespearean play King Lear by the Second Age Theatre Company. On arrival we eagerly awaited lunch in DCU’s canteen amongst the university students. Afterwards we hastily made our way to watch the performance. I personally found it quite helpful to advance my knowledge of the play. There was a powerful performance by the actor in the lead role. With little props the main focus was on the dialogue. A great day out was enjoyed by all.
