Youngsters at St John’s School marked a delightful end to an exciting and packed term by staging William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors.
Pupils from years five and six dressed up for a play full of slapstick, puns and wordplay.
Years seven and eight joined friends and parents to watch the show.
One of the bard’s shortest, it tells the tale of two sets of identical twins separated at birth who come together for a series of mishaps based on mistaken identities.
Headmaster Mike Burgess said: “This was a really ambitious project undertaken by Miss Underwood and her enthusiastic cast and one which will live long in the memory.
“Secretly, I think it was a crafty move on Miss Underwood’s part to inculcate a love of Shakespeare through the medium of allowing juniors to say words they would otherwise not be permitted to use in and around school!”
