I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. - Oscar Wilde
The greatest challenge in our lives today is to begin to try and understand other peoples ‘social construction of reality’. Drama at Bishops is the space where boys are able to challenge perceptions about themselves and the world. It is a wonderful place to explore why and how human beings interact. It is also a place to begin to understand past and current events, and most importantly to ‘become an-other’. Most of all, Drama is a place where young people are able to experience and understand both tolerance and empathy. Through the solo experiences of a monologue or a poem at this Eisteddfod, the boys on stage will be asking themselves very personal questions. This will surely lead to greater communications skills, a deeper sense of understanding and inner confidence.
