A study aid for second level students from An Grianán Theatre 

An Grianán Theatre has produced a valuable study aid for second level students, exploring scenes from MacBeth, Romeo and Juliet, and Philadelphia, Here I Come, and are making them available free for teachers and students, which is now available for free, online at this link Dramacast.

With the disruption of schools and theatres over the past two years, Leaving Cert. students missed out on the valuable experience of seeing their English play tests brought to life on the stage. DramaCast was born from a desire to give those students an online resource that would bring crucial scenes to life, along with expert commentary, to ensure that students have the chance to perform as well as they possibly can in their English exam. 

Produced by An Grianán Theatre in co-production with Workhouse Theatre Co, DramaCast presents scenes from three exam texts: Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and Philadelphia, Here I Come. Two key scenes from each play are performed by local actors and are accompanied by commentary from Michael Kelly, St Eunan’s College, Letterkenny, highlighting what aspects students need to think about when approaching exam questions. In addition, Director Iarla McGowan of Workhouse Theatre gives an overview on how to approach drama as a performance.

The scenes and their commentary are now available for teachers and students at this link https://angrianan.com/in-house-production/dramacast-2022/. The scenes were filmed by An Grianán’s in-house technical team, under the guidance of Director of Photography Karen Quinn. The actors involved were Patrick McBrearty, Megan Armitage, Troy Devaney, Diarmaid Doherty and Aoife Lennon.
