Pupils perform Shakespeare comedy
PUPILS at a Backwell school got to grips with the Bard when they donned glittering costumes for their leavers’ production.
Year six children at Fairfield School performed an abridged version of Shakespeare’s comedy The Taming of the Shrew about a headstrong woman meeting her match and being tamed by love, to watching proud parents.
Teacher Alex Plumb said: “The pupils managed to convey the comedy and fun of the play, as well as getting to grips with Shakespeare’s complex English.
“The play has plenty of opportunity for laughter and the young cast made the most of the funny lines.”
The cast were supported by musical interludes from younger pupils.
