Final Day of Bedlam

In Week 10, the P&C has organised something special – to help break up the pressures of the final week of term and bring a little entertainment and excitement back into 2020. We are lucky enough to have Backbone Youth Arts coming in to perform in CPAC throughout the week, with their production of “The Final Days of Bedlam” by award winning playwright David Burton.

It’s the final few days of school…EVER. Audiences are thrust into a fictional version of today where school is no longer compulsory, in fact school for most young people will no longer exist. A group of students at Bedlam High contemplate what this means for them and what they want next. Do they even want to go to school? Should they start their own school? What do they want to learn? What will the world be like without school? The only thing that’s certain is these last few days are complete bedlam. The Final Days of Bedlam is a play written for young people to ponder the role of the classroom, their power and politics, and what learning means.
