The Effects of War - Briery Gap

Today, after weeks of preparation our TY Religion class traveled to Mullingar to preform our plays as part of the Briery Gap Drama competition. 

At the beginning of December our religion Class divided into two separate groups and and choose a topic of interest inspired by the Millenium Development goals which we had studied earlier in the year. WE chose to write our play about the effects of war and how it impacts on everyone's life and that there are two sides to every story. 

When we were in Mullingar we got to take a visit to Mc Donald's  watch some of the other plays hat were being preformed by other groups and also a trip to the playground, (It wouldn't be the same without the rain though!) 

Overall we felt that our play went very smoothly and most of the comments from the judges were very positive, however they advised us not to us as many props if we were to preform it again. 

We will be finding out within the next week or two which dramas/group got through to the national finial which will take place in Cork. 

You can also take a look at our script for our play. Hope you enjoy! :)
