Year 12 Literature excursion 

 

On 13 March, the Year 12 Literature class travelled to Siena College for a workshop on Tennessee Williams play, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" which we will be studying later in the year. The workshop was put on by Complete Works Theatre Company and was attended by students from Koonung as well as Literature students from Siena and Camberwell Girls Grammar.

"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" is a classic piece of American drama set in the deep south which explores themes of greed, superficiality and repression, and is perhaps best known for the film adaptation featuring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman.

The workshop featured dramatic readings by actors from the company as well as guided discussion around the language and concepts of the text. Koonung students made meaningful contributions to the conversation and were able to gain insight from the ideas put forward by the actors and students from other schools.
