Year 11 Drama Production
Students have been busy rehearsing 'Running Up a Dress'
It has been a busy and rewarding start to Term One for the Year 11 Drama class. The students have been busy rehearsing n class the Australian Contemporary play Running Up a Dress by Susanne Spinner.
The play is mostly concerned with the concept of identity as it is shaped by gender and, in particular, issues relating to women and their roles as mothers and daughters. In the play, the role of women constantly changes as they experience the rituals, duties, actions and activities that intertwine between mothers and daughters. The very act of 'running up a dress' becomes an extended metaphor throughout the play as mothers and daughters weave their way through the many trials and tribulations and moments of joy associated with being a mother-to-be, a new mother, a daughter and a grandmother.
