‘An Exhibition of Ourselves’, ‘Teens in Town’ Review

Inside the heart of the museum, year nines from The Park Community School depicted real events from history that happened right here in Barnstaple – including an interpretation of a trial that took place in the Guildhall as a result of a young woman’s death. The performances appeared rather unrehearsed, but it’s nice to see how much they learned.

The performers then moved outside onto the square to act out scenes of youth homelessness and crime. Although it was unpolished, it was interesting to view events from past, present and future through a young generation’s eyes.

Altogether, a great opportunity for young people to get involved in theatre and engage in both historical and topical issues. Some with great acting potential also.
