Beetlemania lies at heart of class drama
Thursday, 3rd May 2001.
SIXTH FORM students will soon be channelling all their energies into a production of Metamorphosis.
The year 12 students, from Samuel Ward Upper School, Haverhill, are to put on a public performance of the play tomorrow, which will be examined as part of their AS- level drama course.
The play, which the actor and director Steven Berkoff based on a famous story by Kafka, tells of a young man who is bored with life and then wakes up one day to find he has turned into a gigantic beetle.
Karen Packwood, English and drama teacher at the school, said: "The students have put in so many hours for this production. They've been working through their lunch hours, coming in on Sundays and over the Easter holidays.
