    THEMES

    CHURCHILL COMMUNITY FOUNDATION SCHOOL AND SIXTH FORM CENTRE, Churchill, North Somerset
    "I Don't Like Mondays"

      The dance is inspired by the Boom Town Rats hit "I Don't Like Mondays" which itself was based on a true story. Brenda Spencer shot and killed students and teachers at her school one Monday Morning. When asked why she did it she simply replied "I Don't Like Mondays!" We explore what could have made her snap that day.

    CLEEVE SCHOOL, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
    "Romio to Jurietto"

      Two households, both alike in dignity,
      In far Tokyo, where we lay our scene,
      When ancient style clashes with modernity,
      Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
      The fearful passage of our lovers' death-marked love,
      And the continuance of their parents' rage,
      Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
      Is now the eight minutes' traffic of our stage.

    COX GREEN SCHOOL (OPEN TEAM), Maidenhead, Berkshire
    "The Red Room"

      Have you ever been alone? Left with nothing but anticipation? Our piece follows the story of a fearless scholar who dares to stay overnight in the room of a house which is known to enhance its spiritual terrors. Will she be able to reveal what haunts the dreaded Red Room? I'll ask you again - Have you ever been alone?

    COX GREEN SCHOOL (PREMIER TEAM) Maidenhead, Berkshire
    "The Hiding"

      What hides in a child's drawing? A child's escape from reality...A mother's excuses...A father who drinks away his sorrows...why? In the battleground of domestic violence, we explore the ways in which a child learns to cope with the truth. One in three of us will experience violence in the home. It is time to stop hiding.

    PORTSMOUTH COLLEGE, Portsmouth, Hampshire
    "Stand By"

      Television is the curse of the nation feeding ignorance from station to station killing the art of conversation and consuming the brains of today's generation.

    RYDE SCHOOL, Ryde, Isle of Wight
    "Dorothy's Trip through Oz"

      Dorothy has succumbed to temptation. Try as she might to resist the dangerous pleasures of Oz, her curiosity gets the better of her and just like Eve before her, she samples the forbidden fruit. With her curiosity firmly in control, will her common sense see her safely through to the end? Will she survive this trip ?

    SANDOWN HIGH SCHOOL (OPEN TEAM) Sandown, Isle of Wight
    "The Year 1605"

      Remember remember the 5th of November
      But what was the letter and who was the sender
      So much sorrow could have been caused
      If only your plan had had less flaws
      Don't look back, the deed is done
      Your so-called friends are on the run
      The townspeople talk
      While the death creature's stalk
      Death won't pass you by

    SANDOWN HIGH SCHOOL (PREMIER TEAM), Sandown, Isle of Wight
    "Dark Hour of Reason"

      Bruno: an inquisitive boy, adventurer lost, bored! His power hungry father's no suitable idol for Bruno and his intrigue gets the better of him. Although warned by his mother, he's determined to discover life beyond the fence. As his mind wonders, so does he. Face-to-face with innocence, friendship and inhumanity, will his naivety lead to devastation? Or will justice prevail?

    SIR WILLIAM RAMSAY SCHOOL, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
    "Out of Mind"

      Imagine........the human brain capable of creating art and music which inspires generations able to solve complicated equations and discover inventions that heal and change lives. Now imagine........a mind so full of potential but tormented by the pressures of 21st Century living descends into the black net of emotional turmoil, to chaos and depression.

    THE WAVELL SCHOOL, Farnborough, Hampshire
    "Beautiful Blue"

      Half the Earth is covered by unexplored ocean even the parts we know about still have their secrets. Scientists have identified 1.4 million species on earth, believing 10-30 million remain unidentified in the oceans! We need to fish, but excessive fishing methods need to be curbed and pollution must stop so the oceans can remain vibrant, beautiful places.
