Dalkey Project School Playwriting – Artist – Michelle Read

Thursday 23rd May 2013

Two weeks ago all the plays created by the five groups in 6th class were performed to 4th class in the hall. Unfortunately I was unexpectedly in hospital and couldn’t be there, which was a huge disappointment, but here are the children’s comments about performing their new plays to 4th class.

Oisin – “I was pleased because 4th class gave very good constructive  comments and were a very good audience to have. It was very fun to perform, I thought it was going to go bad, but in the end it was very good.”

Dan – “It was tough, but the 4th class were an easy audience. I liked the whole production and performing. I was with half the people I’d normally be with and half I wouldn’t, which was good.”

Julia ” I thought it was pretty good. It started bad and got worse – lots of ups and downs writing the  script, but then it got good.”

Sam – “I thought at the start it was a bit hard, combining all our ideas, but in the end we were very pleased with ourselves and what we created.”

Molly – “I thought it was fun. It was hard at the start.”

Daniel – “I thought the whole experience was great.”

Toby – “It was hard work to write our scripts, but at the same time it was enjoyable… I learnt a lot from working in groups. The end product was brilliant.”

Alannah – ” We kind of argued a lot but it worked out when we performed it. We didn’t think it would go that smoothly.”

Kate – “I thought it was really fun and different but in a good way. All the plays were really unique in their own way.”

Miss D’Arcy  – “I feel that the skills they have acquired during this process will help them a lot in their transition to secondary school. With regard to what was said earlier about being thrown together in mixed groups, because they won’t always be with their friends.’
