The La Retraite Theatre Company

Posted on: 28th Apr 2022

As part of the La Retraite Theatre Company’s Spring programme: a TIE project (Theatre -in-Education is theatre that aims to enlighten/raise awareness/educate audiences), over a period of 6-7 weeks, students from Years 7-10 have devised ideas on topical issues affecting young people: body shaming and mental health. This culminated in two short pieces, which they performed 6 times to students in Years 7 and 8. All students delivered enlightening performances and were extremely professional; all audience members were very aware and understood the messages of the plays.    

We caught up with members of the theatre company to find out their thoughts of the experience –

“I have enjoyed being part of La Retraite Theatre Company as the community is extremely respectful when you make mistakes, and it is a club in which you can exert all your energy into something proactive and feel part of a team.” Aniyah, 7 Faith

“I have gained confidence in myself.” Leyla, 9 Faith

“I’ve enjoyed being free to share ideas.” Ana Luiza, 9 Hope

I’ve enjoyed collaborating with all year groups.” Olivia, 10 Hope
