Looking for a real to life drama with a shocking twist? Free by Lindsay Price is a one-act drama that’s great for high school performers and flexible cast sizes. And it all starts with the words “FREE FOOD”…
Rhiannon O’Hara and the talented group of student performers at Thomas More College in Adelaide, Australia immersed themselves in the play as part of a year-long project and it seems like their hard work paid off!
A few months ago I purchased the show Free as written by Lindsay Price and this was my Year 10 show for Semester 1. We began the year by reading the play and familiarizing ourselves with the characters and plotlines. In the first school term of 2017 the Year 10’s (Year 10 is 15 years old in Australia) looked at the play in terms of Technical Theatre, we used Free as our vice to explore set design, costume, hair and makeup and publicity. In the second term we brought these to life by actually producing the play.
Tonight we performed your show and it was a huge success! For many students this was their first time performing on stage and I am so proud of them, I couldn’t not share their successes with you! I have attached a copy of the promotional poster we used for the show as designed by ‘Mrs. Steel’ and some photos from the rehearsal stage. We are sending lots of love to you for this show and thank you so much for allowing us all the way in South Australia bring it to life!
Congratulations, Thomas More College!
