A Day with Spacey

Two of our students and Miss Carden have been selected as part of a national competition to spend the day as a guest of Kevin Spacey at the Old Vic in London. Ryan Farrell (10GH) and Christy Bellis (10GH) were chosen after submitting essays and recordings of their performances. Miss Carden was also under scrutiny as the application process was as much about the teacher as the students. They will all spend some time in workshops before watching Spacey perform the lead in Richard III, directed by Sam Mendes.
