Our shows aimed at an intermediate level of English focus on different aspects of literature. We look at different writers from throughout the years who have crafted their stories and we share them with the students with an energy and enthusiasm that makes their English experience one they will not forget.
Emigration. A subject that is very close to the heart of every Irish person. The Irish are spread out all over the world and we are now celebrated as the people who helped to build America and even England. But we were not always seen in such a favourable light. In this play, we follow an Irish Busker who is travelling around Europe on a train that travels through time. Starting in the year 2050 and a fragmented EU has made travel difficult, we then travel to the 1940’s, 1880’s, 1970’s and many more and explore the musical diversity to be found in Europe and how easy it was at different times to move around the continent. Relevent today? I certainly think so. Written by Chris Moran who very successfully wrote the ‘Unknown Irish’ for us. A show we are very excited about.
A new concept for the younger students. We take a fun look at some of the great classic stories ranging from tales for toddlers like the Three Little Pigs to works by the great William Shakespeare and examine the story structure that all books, movies and plays have in common. We look at stories for every age group and by including the audience in the story themselves, we promise that the students will be entertained by some of the greatest stories ever told.
The submarine. The first successful submarine was built by the American military but was originally designed by a man named J.P. Holland. Indeed, anyone who has ever travelled to New York City may have driven through the J.P. Holland tunnel celebrating the man. But did you know that J.P. Holland was Irish? The Unknown Irish look at a series of Irish people that people may not have known were Irish. Inventors, poets, musicians and of course writers. We take a fun look at the works like Dracula, Gullivers Travels and the Chronicles of Narnia. A celebration of genius done the WSTT way.
