Kneehigh’s New Production of the ‘Dead Dog in a Suitcase’

15 Dec 15

Before Christmas the Y12 and Y13 drama students headed down to Shoreditch to watch Kneehigh’s new production of the ‘Dead Dog in a Suitcase’. Kneehigh are a theatre company of storytellers who create work on both a small and epic scale. ‘Dead Dog in a Suitcase’ is based on the Beggar’s Opera, the satirical musical’s plot is based upon the corruption of a seemingly surreal world, and how all the inhabitants are affected by and play their parts in the villainy. As an A-leave student, it was refreshing to have the opportunity to see a really modern style of theatre which confronts contemporary issues with comedy, music and puppetry. I believe that trips such as these, and in fact all the trips we go on in the drama department, are so important at exposing students to new, different and possibly challenging styles of theatre…which aren’t often seen in Suffolk. We were also very excited when we spotted Mike Shepherd, the director of the show, when we were having dinner. If you look carefully you can spot him in the photo!
