On the 18th May, three Standard English classes attended the "Educating Rita Play" directed by Julie Baz at The Depot Theatre in Marrickville. Educating Rita was a sensation play which was both humourous and enlightening while also presenting a profound message on the power of education and individuality. The play presented an interesting commentary on the state of “what it means to be educated,” which particularly applied to the year 12 cohort as they are soon be facing life after school and making decisions on further education. The play was performed in a small auditorium where a definite sense of intimacy was felt between the audience and the performers due to the size of the room. The acting was spot on and the atmosphere was immersive giving the feeling like we were in the 80s. All in all it was a great day.
