Davis House 'Trumps' School & Robinson to win One Act Play Festival!
20 March 2017
The One Act Inter-house Play festival 2017 a theatrical display of red talent.

The 52nd annual inter-house play finals were staged on Tuesday night,14 March at King Edward VII School, before a packed audience who enjoyed a feast of comedy in one sitting. There was a visible sense of competition as each successive cast wrestled for the prestige of claiming the top spot in a festival that had started two weeks prior. The spectrum of plays was wide, ranging from classical British farce to a dark and absurd love affair between two dismembered individuals.

The evening was capped by a novel glimpse of American satire presented under the Saturday Night Live banner.

Leading the adjudication panel was the well-known theatrical practitioner Devon Welmers, assisted by two of our Old Boys, Malcolm Meintjes and Mazi Thanda.

A fantastic evening was had by all. The stage has been set with high expectations for the 2018 season. (We regret that some audience members had to be turned away due to lack of seating on the night.)
