This week’s Block 3 and 4 production of Too Soon Made Glad pushed the envelope for school plays away from narrative and linear characters towards a dance theatre cross over, and therefore left its audience furiously discussing what it meant. With beautiful dance in the style of DV8 and poems by Robert Browning, the polished ensemble delivered an hour of exquisite performance. It was astonishing to see performers of this age working with such confidence and focus. Overall an extremely moving piece of work, which I had not seen the like of in a school before.
