Pendle students cast spell in drama
11:32am Tuesday 29th January 2013 in News
DRAMA and theatre students at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form have dazzled audiences with productions based on the Pendle Witches.
As part of their assessment, students on the course must work in groups to create their own devised performance.
This year, the students were given the theme of ‘Pendle Witches 1612’ and had to work together to create a play which would be an interpretation of this.
Lesley Playfer, drama and theatre studies tutor, said: “The students have been very enthusiastic about this project having carried out extensive research.
“Both groups decided to focus on Jennet Devize, the child whose evidence condemned her family to death.
“There was an excellent response from the audience, who seemed to appreciate a fresh approach to a familiar story and I was very pleased with the results.”
