DRAMA students at the John Masefield High School have been working hard in advance of a live performance of a show they have written, performed and directed themselves.

The production, called 'The Things That Love Couldn't Fix', has seen the students working with the theatre practitioner, Frantic Assembly, and the aim was "to explore the effect of devastating news on a close family".

The students were set to receive a third of their grade for the performance, which was scheduled to place at the JMHS Drama Studio at 6.30 pm this Thursday, October 12.

A spokesman added: "Any student wishing to study drama at John Masefield Sixth Form is encouraged to attend the Sixth Form Open evening to be held on Tuesday October 17."
