"Sanctuary" November 2016

On the 23rd and 24th of November 2016 Glasgow Film Theatre’s Creative Learning department, comprising leader Annie McCourt and actors Katrina and Adam, brought their Dramatic Enquiry “Sanctuary” to St. John’s. The enquiry focussed on the plight of the Dragons, who were being supressed by the Sorcerers. The pupils were members of a council (Goodworld) and had to debate and make difficult moral and ethical decisions. This was an allegorical exercise to examine the plight of refugees and economic migrants. The experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended, and we hope to welcome GFT back next year with an enquiry on fair trade.
