This year the IEB English setwork for 2016 is Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. The play is one of Shakepeare’s last tragedies, and follows the story of the eponymous Roman general.
To support the introduction of a new set work, the National Children’s Theatre has produced a version of Coriolanus that has been touring schools around South Africa for the past few months, and will continue to do so until June. The majority of the cast and crew are graduates of our division, and they have been acquitting themselves most admirably in the process.
Sarah Roberts, a staff member in the Division of Theatre and Perfromance had this to say about her interactions with the cast: “What was as important to witness was how quickly and generously all these young graduates established a shared sense of purpose; a strong ensemble sensibility is already in place.” Congratulations to all the Witsies involved, the evidence of your employment reflects well on the outcomes of our training programme in the division.
