Hamlet Trip for Leaving Certs

Hamlet Trip for Leaving Certs
"Though this be madness, yet there is method in it.”
Sometimes in school you forget when studying dramas that they are meant to be viewed live and not just read and analysed.
So that's what one of our leaving cert English classes did on Thursday. We chose a play that was on the leaving cert course this year, had a main character who was moody, constantly fighting with his mother, who over thought everything and couldn't really make his mind up about anything. No wonder our students could empathise with Hamlet!!!
We struck off early for the @theeverymancork for the @cyclonereptheatre production of Hamlet. The production was a modern twist on the 400 year old classic with Hamlet even having his own social media posts and face times with character. The production was interactive with the actors asking and answering questions thought.
The day was topped off with a trip to Mahon point for some retail therapy and buckets of coffee for the teachers. No one was lost and heres hoping they learned a thing or two about the play.
