Mon père ne me comprend pas

Modern Foreign Languages 7th Feb 2022

On 4th February the Academy was visited by Onatti theatre company who performed their play “Mon père ne me comprend pas” to our students studying French in Y9,10 and 11.

The play was performed completely in French. Student feedback was good – they enjoyed the main characters and were impressed by the fact that the whole performance was delivered by just two actors and a screen.

We worked with students after the play to see what they had understood – what they had written shows that they had followed the content really well. This is the first time that we have done anything like this – our students were very engaged and well behaved.

We will be having a Spanish play from the same company next month. We can’t wait!
