LORETTO SENIOR SCHOOL PLAY: Noccioline (Nuts) by Fausto Paravidino.
A cast of 15 Loretto Sixth Formers took on the challenge of ‘Nuts’ by Fausto Paravidino on recently and created a powerful ensemble performance of real quality.
Tight, sharp and full of attitude, they managed to bring alive this quirky piece of political theatre which is based on the writer’s response to events surrounding the G8 summit in Genoa in 2001.
These were talented young actors who understood what they were doing, and did it with relish. Saturday night’s performance was perhaps particularly strong, crackling with electricity. Typical of Loretto’s Drama: challenging, gutsy, polished and, most importantly, not about the individual but the team.
