Donmar Workshop - Saint Joan
Donmar Warehouse workshop on Saint Joan
Wednesday, 8th February, the Drama department were delighted to welcome Jordana Golbourn from the Donmar Warehouse to come and deliver a workshop on Saint Joan.
Jordana inspired the students by focusing on themes of the play which included:
-genius and saintliness
-mental superiority causing animosity
-visions and visionary method
-gender and gender dressing
-feminism and a man's life
-youthful immaturity and educational ignorance
-science versus religion
The girls, through acting, interpreted the different themes and gained a deeper undertsanding of the play, which they were due to go and see the very next day.

Tyra-Faith Malcom Herbert: “I loved the workshop which was creative and helped me understand the play”.
Emmanuella Osuala: “Innovative, creative and inspiring”.
Jemima Matuba: “Exciting, helpful, motivating”.
Mary K: “Thought-provoking”, “Informative”, “Fun”
